Photographer's Note

After a steep clim through the forest we reached the Jvari Monastery that provides a magnificent view on the small but old city of Mtskheta at the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers. rnDue to its historical significance and several cultural monuments, the "Historical Monuments of Mtskheta" became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. As the birthplace and one of the most vibrant centers of Christianity in Georgia, Mtskheta was declared as the "Holy City" by the Georgian Orthodox Church in 2014.
