Bagrati Cathedral was built in the early years of the 11th century, during the reign of King Bagrat III and is included in UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list.

Founded in 12th century by King David IV the Builder, Gelati is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and represents a well-preserved complex, with wonderful mosaics and wall paintings. It used to have an academy, which employed some of the most celebrated Georgian scientists, theologians, and philosophers, many of whom had previously been active at various orthodox monasteries abroad.
