Kutaisi

Tbilisi's traditional rival for capital status
Georgia’s third largest city, Kutaisi has often played the role of second city in its long history, even serving as capital at times. The city even hosted the national parliament from 2012 to 2018, in a modern building worth visiting. The ruins of Bagrati Cathedral overlook Kutaisi, while several other UNESCO sites, such as Gelati Monastery, are nearby. Kutaisi's airport has attracted many low-cost carriers, making it the cheapest way to travel to much of East and Central Europe.
Kutaisi is an excellent base for adventure tourism, with Georgia’s largest caves and some of its best rafting areas located in the area. We recommend touring the hilltop Gelati Monastery, heading down the Okatse Canyon, and stopping at the Kinchkha waterfalls. After taking a boat down the Matvili Canyon, descend one last time into the massive Prometheus show cave. While these places are spread out, we can provide a guide/driver to help you link them together.
