Uplistikhe Cave Town

Translating as “the Lord’s fortress”, Uplistsikhe is one of the oldest urban settlements in the country. This cave city near Gori was cut from the rock on the left bank of the Mtkvari River and thrived until it was abandoned as a result of devastating Mongol Raids in the 14th century. Although some parts of Uplistsikhe were destroyed by an earthquake in 1920, there are many structures and alleyways which remain to be explored, linked by tunnels cut from the rock.
