Isn't it impossible to travel to one city and experience a few days long, an unforgettable journey through time?
Imagine starting your odyssey by observing real footprints of dinosaurs, house-caves of prehistoric humans, nature reserves from the Jurassic period, canyons, and waterfalls.
Then find yourself in an antic time city having a close eye on jewelry, kitchenware, and materials from 8th century BC … The jewelry made of Medea’s Gold, the same Medea probably known for you from the Greek myth about Argonauts and Golden Fleece.
In a quest of past time shadows and silhouettes, you will encounter orthodox churches of early Christianity. Somewhere on the old wall paintings of Bagrati Cathedral, Gelati, or Motsameta monasteries you may discover a history of a small country placed in between the East and the West.
And then, if you manage to escape impressions imposed on you after these experiences, you can continue the road to 19th-20th century Georgia, as revolutionary, rebellious, and romantic as the whole world of that time.
All these are fairly possible! This history, oldness, and tenseness are quieted down in old streets of Kutaisi, on old epitaphs and signboards, old-time balconies of the houses in Catholic and Jewish quarters.
But if you desire to lose a sense of time and walk away from reality, then your place seems to be on Imeruli Supra which is the name of feast table and tradition of gathering guests and hosts together in Imereti. Tandem of superb dishes, soft Imeretian wine, and sweet Imeretian songs will swiftly take you to pronoun magic world of famous Georgian “Supra”.
Do you know that cafes in Kutaisi are more alike to cozy houses with old buffets and lampshades? The houses, we all miss time to time and wish to come back there once in a while.
It will be interesting for you to know that there are many wine cellars in little villages covering Imereti’s green hills where an attentive host will surely explain differences between Tsolikauri, Tsitska, Otskhanuri Safere, and Krakhuna _ Imeretian wine.
As you see, there are many reasons why one day you must pack your luggage, take a ticket and discover Kutaisi _ the city, unlike any other one.
