The world’s Most Beautiful Churches: Gergeti Trinity Church, Georgia

Our Forefathers Gave Us These – What Do We Give Our Children?

It is possibly the setting, in the green and white Caucasus mountains, below the summit of Mt Kazbegi, that makes Gergeti Trinity Church quite so magnificent. Dating from the 14th century, it has a separate bell tower, and is often used as a navigation point for trekkers, who make a three-hour mountain climb to reach it. While religious services were banned during the Soviet era, it is once again used as a place of worship.
