This is one of the oldest churches in Tbilisi. It's in the Old Town and it is easy to find it. It looks really fantastic, I would even say that it smells like history :)

This review is quite late. I just came from the Puppet Theatre when I passed by an old church buildoing which turned out to be the Anchiskhati Basilica. The simplicity of the architectural design enhances the beauty of the structure.

This is the oldest church in Old Tbilisi. There are far fewer icons in this church than many of the others in Old Tbilisi. This gives it more of a feel of the churches seen in Armenia. It is also different in that it has...More
