Create an itinerary including Bagrati Cathedral
The Cathedral of the Dormition, or the Kutaisi Cathedral, more commonly known as Bagrati Cathedral (Georgian: ბაგრატი; ბაგრატის ტაძარი, or Bagratis tadzari), is an 11th-century cathedral in the city of Kutaisi, in the Imereti region of Georgia. A masterpiece of medieval Georgian architecture, the cathedral suffered heavy damage throughout centuries and was reconstructed to its present state through a gradual process starting in the 1950s, with controversial conservation works concluding in 2012. These works prompted UNESCO to remove the cathedral from its list of World Heritage sites. A distinct landmark in the scenery of central Kutaisi, the cathedral rests on the Ukimerioni Hill. It is considered one of the four Great Cathedrals of the Georgian Orthodox world.

  • - Old + Free Admission + - In northern Edge of Old Town, you need to ride Taxi or you can Walk with a bit difficult due existing Up-Hill & using the Stairs is more easier and Faster than Streets.

  • A stunning church with a lot of history. Better to go with a guide so they can share with you. Also has the cloth from Jesus and some bones of different apostles. Also a really great view of the city....  more

  • Such a beautiful cathedral situated a little higher from the city.. If you are planning to visit the city I would definitely recommend going here and offering prayers here.. Also do check out around outside of the cathedral as it has a really nice view of the city from above and there are some nice views to maybe click a picture or two 😉 We visited during May and it was raining here which was a bonus for us as the view was just stunning. Peace ✌🏻
  • The roads are a bit rough. Prefer sports shoes. The cathedral is very old, the renovation work is very bad. Still, that mystical atmosphere is very beautiful. Definitely visit. The view of the cathedral is very beautiful. Inside are the bones of Santa Claus
