  • A few old buildings, which were not bad. I liked seeing the way people lived but many of them were locked up, not a great cultural experience.

  • Cool place. Awesome guides in each house. Very informative, allowed me to discover a bunch of new info about the past of Georgia. Some buildings are closed, some hard to find, but it's worth it.
  • Great historical / cultural museum. They have houses from different villages/groups and a lot of them are open with a guide inside to tell you what the place is and what the tools and furniture are. We had so much fun!
