The Complex also includes living quarters and a wine cellar.
Drive to Akhaltsikhe(62 km from Vardzia). In Georgian, Akhaltsikhe means – “New Fortress” and this place has always had a strategic importance. That’s why the fortress Rabat has been built here in the 9th century, so it’s been called the fortress inside the fortress. It was guarding Georgia for centuries, but there were periods when enemies took over. The fortress keeps traces of both times, giving an unforgettable impression. The fortress has been recently renovated. Here you can see the Georgian church, mosque and Madrasa – Islamic school, citadel, and unique museum.
