обзорная экскурсия по Тбилиси

Столица Грузии Тбилиси издавна была культурным и политическим центром Кавказа. Этому городу около 1600 лет. Тбилиси видел в своих стенах хазар, гуннов, византийцев, персов, монголов, арабов, турок-сельджуков и турок-османов. Представители множества народов, разных конфессий и цивилизаций, оседали на месте пересечения торговых путей, оставляя свой след в облике, нравах и обычаях Тбилиси. Так сложился уникальный характер мультикультурного города, основанный на принципах толерантности и добрососедства. Мы начнем познавать его с исторического центра. Абанотубани - район серных бань. Они построены над термальными источниками, которым Тбилиси обязан своим существованием. Вы узнаете об истории города, услышите предание о фазане и царе Вахтанге Горгасали, после чего подниметесь в цитадель Нарикала. Со стен древней крепости открывается прекрасная панорама ущелья реки Мтквари и живописных отрогов Триалетского хребта, среди которых раскинулся Тбилиси. Затем мы окажемся на другом берегу и осмотрим Метехи - красивую церковь XIII века, построенную на отвесной скале. Здесь можно сделать отличные фотографии Старого города и услышать рассказ о святых покровителях Тбилиси, ставших мучениками под стенами этого храма. Перейдя через мост, мы окажемся на улице, названной в честь французского путешественника Жана Шардена. Грузия. Вы пройдете по колоритным узким улочкам и увидите кафедральный собор Сиони, который возвел в начале XII века один из величайших грузинских царей Давид Строитель. Затем переулки Старого города приведут нас к базилике Анчисхати - старейшей постройке Тбилиси, которая датируется VI веком и была хранительницей одной из самых почитаемых грузинских святынь. Эту чудотворную икону в драгоценном окладе вы увидите немного позже, осматривая сокровища Золотого фонда и другие экспонаты Музея искусств Грузии. продолжаем тур в заводе Сараджишвили пробуем знаменитый коньякб каторая производится по старым обычаям с 1884 года. Завершить день в ресторане, вечерный ужин с вином в сопровождении живих народных песен (опция с Тамадой $200 на группу).
