Pinsteps. Sycamore of Telavi

Who owned Kakheti and Katrli, he held the Caucasus. It was a good proposal, and Heraclius concluded the St. George treatise with Catherine II. Under this agreement, the kings of the Bagration dynasty always had to remain on the Georgian throne. But the Russians did not fulfill this contract. The Persian Shah came and defeated the Georgians, Russia did not help. At the same time, the capital Tbilisi was seized by the Persians. All of the Georgians were expelled and destroyed. Armenians inhabited the city. A few years later, in 1801, Russia comes to Tbilisi and occupies a city without war and forces all Georgian princes to take an oath of allegiance to the emperor. In 1811, Russia was trying to conquer the Georgian Orthodox Church. In 1918, Georgia once again declared independence. In 1922, Georgia back fell under the Russian Empire. The next round of Russian expansion into the Caucasus is 2008. Tskhinval and Abkhazia. This plane tree is 900 years old. A scene from the film Mimino, in which a traffic cop stops the hero near this tree, was shouted here.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Georgia. Alazani Valley and Gudauri. May 25, 2019

From the picturesque Sighnaghi, our way passed through the Alazani Valley to Gudauri. Maybe we were led by the mythical griffin that brought grape seed to Georgia? We have enjoyed wine, vineyards, wine museum, tastings, more wine, and more wine! And even in Telavi, after the Mimino tree, we tasted wine and chacha again. Spectacular views of the Georgian military road and the Aragvi gorge accompanied us on the way to Gudauri. It was an incredible adventure!
