Traveling through the historic old town of Gori, the whole city is not big. When you look up, you can see the walls and the broken castles left by history. Looking at the time is still abundance, then walk from the bus station to the castle, mountaineering overlooking the entire city of Gori.
Walk in the old town, I often meet local people, looking at our two foreign tourists with great interest, most of us will talk to us from Georgia, talk to China from Georgia, talk from travel To politics, I am telling the story of Stalin.
Gori is an important military fortress in the Middle Ages and is strategically important because it is located on the main road connecting eastern and western Georgia. In the course of history, Gory has been repeatedly invaded by regional powers. During the 2008 Russian-Georgian war, the city was occupied by Russian troops. At the same time, Gori was the birthplace of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.
There is little research on history. We did not intend to visit the former residence of Stalin. Instead, we were more interested in the city of Uplistsikhe Cave Town, which was dug in a stone 10 kilometers away.
Uplistsikhe Cave Town is situated on a rocky hill, most of which have no decoration, although some of the larger buildings have latticed vaulted ceilings and stone carvings resemble logs. At the top of this complex is a Christian church built of stone and brick. The structure inside is intricate, and many of the holes are connected to each other. Walking inside it seems to shuttle through the stone maze of the world. Even at noon in the hot sun, the cave is breezy, even if it is a broken wall, but the outline left by history is clearly visible, it is not difficult to imagine the glorious scene.
