Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi

Although relatively new, the Cathedral of Tbilisi is absolutely spectacular. Colloquially known Sameba (Georgian for "Trinity") the construction is a traditional Georgian cross-dome construction with strong Byzantine undertones. This enormous cathedral towers over the city from its perch on the Ilya Hill and offers a spectacular view. Come here just before sunset for optimal lighting.

Do & See

Museums, churches, historical sites and buildings, green open spaces and much more await you in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. Surrounded by mountains and crossed by the Kura River, the city combines the ancient and the modern with a good mix of old streets, dotted with decadent buildings, along with brand new sights and attractions, such as the 360-degree cable car, which takes you up to the Narikala Fortress and lets you enjoy a spectacular view, and the stunning Bridge of Peace, made of steel and glass and beautifully illuminated at night.
