Create an itinerary including Gori Castle
Gori Castle once served as a strategic fortification overlooking the eponymous city. Perched on a rocky hill, the fortress probably dates to the 13th century. The present-day structure was built between 1630 and 1774, featuring rounded bastions made of baked bricks and herringbone patterns in the stonework of the walls. Enjoy a view of the city through pointed stone arches, and see snowcapped Caucasus in the distance.

  • Must visit place if you come on Gori tour. I prefer it even to Stalin house museum. Places like this have interesting energy. Stay hydrated bois
  • A very old fortress and after you climb a lot of stairs you get a panoramic view of the town. Other than that there is nothing to see in the fort. Entrance is free with security guards around
