If you’re only in George for short time and would love to see one of the most interesting touristic attractions, this tour is for you, with a day trip to Uplistsikhe, the oldest urban settlement, as well as Stalin's museum in the small town of Gori.
What to Expect
Spend a day exploring some of the most fascinating attractions in Georgia, starting with the ancient town of Uplistsikhe, considered once of the oldest urban settlements in all of George and dating back to the 200 B.C. The ancient rock-hewn town, on the list for inclusion into the UNESCO World Heritage program, contains a bulk of rock-cut structures and is connected to the southern part via a narrow rock-cut pass and a tunnel, with narrow alleys and sometimes staircases radiating from the central "street" to its various structures.
After exploring Uplistsikhe, continue the tour to Joseph Stalin's Museum in Gori, established as a local history museum but clearly intended to become a memorial to Stalin. The main building of the complex is a large palace in Stalinist Gothic style. Enshrined within a Greco-Italianate pavilion is a small wooden hut, in which Stalin was born in 1878 and spent his first four years.
