There's not much in Akhaltsikhe to see. It's more a stop on your tour route. The government has restored this old castle on the silk route to give you something to see. It's well done with a nice museum. Worth an hour at the most...More

What a strange place. I’m afraid that historic sites tend to lose a lot of authenticity when there is little, if anything, left of the original buildings. This place looks like a brand new version of an ancient complex, complete with bars/restaurants, shops and hotel....More

It is really nice place, unfortunately totally new reconstructed, but the atmosphere is perfect. You can find lots of things connected to different nations and cultures. Here you will explore Georgian Orthodox church and Muslim mosque at the same time.

Completely rebuilt with shops and a hotel. There is an entry fee but you can see quite a bit for free including walking along the walls and in the towers.

Enormous amounts of money have been invested to renovate this fortress/castle/museum. Even though you might consider it a bit Disney-esque, Rabati really is a beautiful and significant cultural and historic site. Be sure to have a guide take you around so you can appreciate everything...More

The fortress walls are close to the originals but so many 'attractions' have been added - a gold dome (according to our guide at the behest of the Turkish government who part-funded the renovation), Moorish and Russian pavilions - that have nothing to do with...More

Rabati castle is a beautiful blend of Christian and Muslim architecture. I thought the renovations were excellent - tasteful and accurate. The gardens also add to its beauty. Make sure you pay the extra to go inside the inner walls, its well worth it. The...More
