The Sioni cathedral, situated in the heart of Tbilisi city centre is the spiritual centre of Tbilisi even after the construction of the new, much larger cathedral. of special value are the frescoes, very beautiful and provides the cathedral of an unique atmosphere

If you visit the Old City, you will not miss this church. So, come inside. This is the oldest church in the city. It has not been much damaged at the Soviet times. Many paintings and icons inside.

This is a must see church. It has lovely architecture, paintings and frescoes. As with all churches you must wear a headscarf and dress respectfully.
