Uplistsikhe is an ancient rock-hewn town in eastern Georgia, some 10 kilometers east of the town of Gori, Shida Kartli. Built on a high rocky left bank of the Mtkvari River, it contains various structures dating from the Early Iron Age to the Late Middle Ages, and is notable for the unique combination of various styles of rock-cut cultures from Anatolia and Iran, as well as the co-existence of pagan and Christian architecture. Uplistsikhe is identified by archaeologists as one of the oldest urban settlements in Georgia.
Stalin Museum- A completely amazing experience and one of most visitors' favorite stops is a hagiographic account of Georgia's most notorious son. Located in Gori, where his name is still revered, the Museum is still exactly like it was in Soviet times, almost down to the guides’ memorized speech, the heroic realist art and a smiling Uncle Joe.
