the cathedral has been rebuilt several times. During the Soviet years it was used as theater after several failed attempts by the city's leader to destroy the structure. Not special place for me, just passed by it to go to freedom square.

This is about an hour or so away from old town tbilisi. The best day to go here is on a weekday. During the week end there are more people for sure.

For me it is not a must see place though it is rich in history. You have the option to skip this place, well that's just me.
