  • We didn't have the chance to go visit inside of it, but the outside design was really nice, and the small memorial beautiful.

  • Very rude staff who pretended to not understand what I was asking even though we had several languages in common. I am sure it is a lovely building but was not allowed to see upstairs which looks gorgeous from the photos.
  • Great Synagogue is Tbilisi's one of the most important historical sight and for Jewish people symbol of Georgia Jewish thousand years friendship history.
