Uplistsikhe ia an ancient cave-town, one of the first cities in Georgia. Uplistsikhe carved into the rock, located 12 kilometers east of the town of Gori on the left bank of the Kura River. Town was founded in the late II - at the beginning of I millennium BC. e., has experienced several ups and downs, was finally abandoned in the XIX century and is one of the most important monuments of Georgian culture. During its blossoming Uplistsikhe included more than 700 caves and cave structures, of which only 150 survived to the present time.

To get to these places is possible by car or tourist bus. A feature of Uplistsikhe lies in the fact that it has kept the shades of architectural and cultural structures built over several millenniums. Today, like in the early centuries, the rites are held in the church Uplistsuli and under the arches of ancient caves numerous tourists stroll.
