This cathedral is old and beautiful with impressive frescoes. Not very big so easy to pop in for a look. Dress appropriately.

One of the oldest churches in Tbilisi, being originally built in the 5th/6th century. surprisingly decorated inside, not really typical for an Orthodox church, I believe it to be a must-see in town. Located in the city centre it is very easy to reach.

A beautiful church to visit while walking in the city center, you will see it while walking around so no need to put it on the to-do list.
