Shida Kartli

The region is located in the center of Georgia.
Traveling from Batumi to Tbilisi, or from Tbilisi to Kutaisi, you will definitely pass through Shida Kartli.
Now the trip passes on a wide concrete highway. It does not have sharp turns and you can move at a constant speed. This allows you to drive in comfort.
The exception is the mountain section of the road near the Rikotsky Pass. In this segment, we recommend to go carefully and follow the recommendations of road signs.
It is worth remembering that in the winter season in the city can be sunny and dry, and in the mountains at this time there will be snow and ice.
The land in Shida Kartli is very fertile, so along the way you can buy delicious fruit. As a rule, private traders sell fruit cheaper.


The center of the region is the city of Gori.

He is most famous for the fact that here is the museum of Stalin. The museum is located in the city, so if you want to visit the museum, you will have to leave the highway. The freeway is located slightly away from the city.
Even in Gori, you can see the fortress Goristihe. (Translated as “Fortress of Gori”).

Also in this region is the famous cave city Uplistsikhe. The name translates as “Fortress of the Maker”.
