To me, Georgian monasteries is as iconic as the mighty Caucasus. After seeing so many monasteries (too many) in Georgia I’ve come to the conclusion that Georgians sure know the real values ofreal estate: location, location, location.
Vardzia is a cave city complex near Akhaltsikhe. Many have likened Vardzia to the dwarf’s kingdom Moria in Lord of the Rings.
Weird people and weird places, that was my welcome to Georgia. I took it as a sign that Georgia was going to be anything but boring.
