Small Traditional Church

One encounters this Russian Orthodox Church exiting the old town toward the fortress. The church boasts a number of frescos and icons. Free and worth a brief visit.

A lady that probably works at this church set behind us and understood that we are tourists started to ask as questions. We did not want to go into so much conversation but answered her.

Kashveti Church is a beautiful place to go. Just women have to wear skirt and scarf that can be borrowed from church. Most of the time you can find someone praying there which make it very beautiful with nice atmosphere.

Probably not worth a visit just to see the church but there is no harm stopping there as one walks along Rustaveli Avenue. The evening lighting makes the architecture more interesting.

Beautiful church- 15mins outside Tbilis. It is important to follow dress code- men should be in trousers and women should cover their heads. No pictures can be taken inside.

Beautiful church, I spent a long tie inside of it, in the silence and respect, it was warmly candlelit but locals and foreigners kissing or touching the icons. A heartwarming collection of icons so beautiful to admire. Strongly recommended!
