Cathedral was built in 1906-7 as a Georgian Orthodox church that was turned into theatre in 1923 by the Red army. Since 2005 it's been cathedral again, full of light and interesting iconostases.

It is a large church of very unusual style for Georgia. The location is super central so you'll have to pass by it at least.

Interesting to see if you pass by. Great location in the middle of a traffic circuit next to a nice park.

The Cathedral, the Clock Tower and the Park are all together in the centre of town, and are well worth a visit whether touring or just bored............ for Poti has little by way of entertainment.

It's a beautiful church, with interesting history. Nothing like traditional Georgian-style church, it was supposed to imitate Hagia Sofia. During Soviet era, it was transformed into a theater, but since then it went back to being a church.
