What to Expect
Uplistsikhe

 

Uplistsikhe (II c B.C. - X c A.D.) is an ancient rock-hewn town in Eastern Georgia, some 100 kilometers Western from Tbilisi. Built on a high rocky left bank of the Mtkvari river, it contains various structures dating from the Early iron age to the Late middle ages and is notable for the unique combination of various styles of rock-cut cultures, co-existence of Pagan and Christian architecture.. The Uplistsikhe cave complex has been on the tentative list for inclusion into the UNESCO World Heritage program since 2007 because Uplistsikhe is identified by archaeologists as one of the oldest urban settlements in Georgia. The town's age and importance led medieval Georgian written tradition to describe its foundation to the mythical Uplos, son of Mtskhetos, and grandson of Kartlos.

 

Joseph Stalin's Museum in Gori

 

Joseph Stalin’s Museum in Gori established in 1951 as a memorial to Stalin, who died in 1953. The main building of the complex is a large palace in the Stalinist Gothic style. Enshrined within a Greco-Italianate pavilion is a small wooden hut, in which Stalin was born in 1878 and spent his first four years.

To one side of the museum is Stalin's personal railway carriage. The green Pullman carriage, which is armor plated and weighs 83 tons, was used by Stalin from 1941 onwards, including his attendances at the Yalta Conference and the Tehran Conference. It was sent to the museum on being recovered from the railway yards at Rostov on Donau in 1985.

The museum charts Stalin’s journey from the Gori church school to the leadership of the USSR, the Yalta Conference at the end of WWII and his death in 1953. The first hall upstairs covers his childhood and adolescence, including his rather cringeworthy pastoral poetry, and then his early revolutionary activities in Georgia The exhibition is divided into six halls in roughly chronological order, and contain many items actually or allegedly owned by Stalin.

The display concludes with one of twelve copies of the death mask of Stalin taken shortly after his death.
