Georgia Things to Do: 133 reviews and 389 photos
From the terrace of the Metekhi Church ( with the statue of Vahtang Gorgasali) at the north bank, you have a good view at the Nankala Fortress at the other bank of the river.
This fort has a long history. First it was a Persian Citadel in the 4th century. Much of the present walls were built in the 8th century by Arab emirs. Later Georgians, Turks and Persians captured the fort. In 1827 the fort and church were destroyed by an explosion.
You can visit the fortress, but we didn't.
