This fortress is just before the bridge separating Samegrelo from Abkhazia. In addition to visiting the fortress, if you go on top of it you will have a great view on Abkhazian landscape. It is an abandoned fortress, therefore no working hours restrictions or entrance fees. If you are in Zugdidi, then it is a nice place to go.

Rukhi Fortress
Rukhi fortress was built by Levan Dadiani in 1647. It was an important fortification of Samegrelo. The fortress consisted of a citadel and lower court. The citadel is to the north with towers at both ends. The northeast tower, i.e. the main tower, contained a dungeon. The lower part of the fortress is blocked at a height of eight to ten meters, and on the top battle paths are arranged. The fortress entrance is situated on the top floor, built into the wall of the tower. Within the walls of the second and third floors there are built-in gun-port openings. The fortress is surrounded by a wall with height of ten to twelve meters.

The French traveler Jean Chardin tells about one battle of the Rhuki fortress - in 1672, he was eyewitness to the invasion of by the Ottomans and described the battles in detail.
In 1769, near the Rhuki fortress one of the episodes of Russian - Turkish war took place. In 1770, the combined forces of Georgians and Russians liberated the fortress from the Ottomans.

Went for a quick meal in the Barbican Plymouth branch of Bella italia,

Service was fantastic but all credit was due to Fiona- her warm and friendly service made the experience.

Some of the other staff need to learn from her-

Male manager on service on 16th July 21:00 was great. keen to please and was ensuring the restaurant was being run smoothly great credit.

We will return but most likely to the other restaurant in plymouth as thats where Fiona usually works.

Service is what makes it.

Well done Fiona!!
