Gelati Monastery – Kutaisi, Georgia

I had the opportunity to visit this UNESCO World Heritage site last fall.. It is located just a short ride from Kutaisi, Georgia.

The site has been neglected for ages and, when I visited in November of last year, reconstruction was underway …

It is located about 10 km from the city. The easiest way to reach this wonderful example of ancient Georgian architecture is to negotiate a taxi.. There are buses, but they are infrequent and run on no set timetable..

When you visit Kutaisi, be sure to include this on your “must see” places to visit..
