Georgia. Prometheus Cave and Okatse Canyon
Not far from Kutaisi there are three interesting places: two caves - "Prometheus" and Sataplia with dinosaur footprints and the Okatse canyon.
To visit the three places conveniently based in Kutaisi. In a Tbilisi hostel, I met a Turkish businessman from Antalya. He had nothing to do before his departure home and he asked for my fellow travelers. A good argument was his "Mercedes", on which we first reached Kutaisi. And the next day it was driven around the neighborhood. In Kutaisi, we picked up Kazakh travelers - mother and daughter. I met my daughter Zhadira through a couch back in Tbilisi.
Immediately two interesting points on the same sign. 1715 km. This is the longest distance to the settlement that I saw on the signs. And the second is the capital of Abkhazia Sukhumi, which Georgia considers its city and continues to write it on signs.
The rows of identical houses that are found along the Tbilisi-Gori highway are the villages of South Ossetian refugees.
In Georgia, there is a good design. Refueling complex on the highway.
And this is a stall in Kutaisi.
Not all energy can be women - what kind of discrimination?
Turbo gum still exists.
Interestingly, this hearse is used for its intended purpose. Or like a family car?
The police stations of glass and concrete, which appeared in the framework of police reform, can hardly be called a model of good design. But they look unusual and unexpected in small towns and villages.
In the Georgian high-rise buildings, to drive an elevator you must throw a coin of 10 tetri (2 rubles) in a box. Only after that the elevator will go - Georgian optimization. But the residents of the first floors are not outraged that they have to pay for the elevator, which they do not use.
Throw a coin in such a box - there will be a new church.
The cave "Prometheus" was discovered in 1983. Since 1985, began to prepare the tourist route on it. But a little time and the USSR collapsed. Together with him suspended restoration work in the cave.
in 2011, the cave finally opened for tourists on the personal instructions of Saakashvili. He also came up with the catchy name of the cave "Prometheus".Because Prometheus was chained supposedly in the area.
The arrangement of the cave and the installation of lighting was carried out by French cave specialists. The light came out very cool: exactly those elements that need it are highlighted. Light does not interfere with photographing, but rather helps.
Because in a similar cave - Kandovan in Iran disgusting light. There or dim, or the lamp shines exactly in the eye.
The length of the cave is 11 kilometers. For visitors open 1050 meters. Descent into the cave under the supervision of a guide. It is good that she does not drive from the hall to the hall and does not load information. And quietly gives a walk and poke on fancy stalactites.
Through the small villages, along the mountain serpentine we get to the Okatse canyon.
The route to the canyon runs through a civilized forest path.
Ticket service. In my rules of design.
After the forest trail begins the route along the cableway.
The final point is a viewing platform in the form of a cross.
