The Cathedral of the Dormition, or the Kutaisi Cathedral, more commonly known as Bagrati Cathedral (Georgian: ბაგრატი; ბაგრატის ტაძარი, or Bagratis tadzari), is an 11th-century cathedral in the city of Kutaisi, in the Imereti region of Georgia. A masterpiece of the medieval Georgian architecture, the cathedral suffered heavy damage throughout centuries and was reconstructed to its present state through a gradual process starting in the 1950s, with controversial conservation works concluding in 2012. These works prompted UNESCO to remove the Cathedral from its list of World Heritage sites. A distinct landmark in the scenery of central Kutaisi, the cathedral rests on the Ukimerioni Hill.

  • If you like the Assassin's Creed series, you must come here! Apparently the renovation (the black matte metal part) cost the church to be removed from the UNESCO list of world heritage sites (because they thought it's not true to the original style - stupid!), but goodness me does it look stunningly enchanting and First Civilization. A majestic church built on a place one used by The Ones That Came Before - a must see in Georgia!
  • One of the oldest cathedrals out there. Great relaxing place with beautiful scenery. You can see whole city from it. Lot of lovely puppies to adopt.
