Kakheti, here we are!
So much to see in this region....

Let's start with Ikhalto!
Ikhalto was the first university in this region. Imagine King Irakli II and Shota Rustaveli studying there for a moment, not at the same time period, of course...What is striking in Ikhalto is the size of it, as well as what is left of the site itself. Newly restored, and quite nicely done, as a matter of fact, it is truly a place where you feel history.

|These walls resonate of speeches and lectures!|
