Gori Castle - Review

The Gori Castle is situated above the beautiful city of Gori and is a 13th century fortress. It was of strategic importance for several centuries and was also attacked numerous times by the invading armies. Much of the castle that can be seen today dates back to the 17th and the 18th century and was significantly destroyed in the year 1920 in an earthquake. The herringbone patterns seen on the stonework of the walls is rather impressive while there are a few remaining structure that are worth appreciating. There’s a cobblestone path on the side of the hills that leads up to the fortress. The views of the mountain, the city, and the surrounding green plains are striking from the Gori Castle.

Gori Castle, Gori Reviews

  • Old brick castle in Gori. Really need a day to discover all parts. A big castle and possible to see the whole city. The river and location

  • Very few people here. There are not that many spots in Gori so if you come here. Just come to see it.

  • Gori Fortress (Georgian: გორის ციხე, "Goris Tsikhe") is a medieval citadel in Georgia, standing above the city of Gori on a rocky hill. The fortress first appears in the 13th century records but archaeological evidence shows that the area had already been fortified in the last centuries BC. The fortress controlled major strategic and economic routes and accommodated a large garrison. In the 16th century the Ottomans captured it to overawe Tbilisi. In 1598 the Georgians besieged it to no avail; in 1599 they feigned a relaxation of the siege for Lent before launching a surprise attack at night to regain the citadel. The fortress continued to change hands between the Georgians and the Persians in the 17th century. The citadel acquired the present-day form under the Georgian kings Rostom of Kartli in the 1630s and Erekle II in 1774. After the Russian annexation of Georgia in 1801, the fortress was garrisoned by a Russian grenadier battalion, but its importance gradually declined and the fortifications went defunct. The British Encyclopædia Metropolitana reported in 1845: At the foot of a chain of low sand-stone hills stands the Town and Fortress of Gori, (perhaps the Gursenna of Strabo,) the next place in magnitude and importance to Tiflis. The Castle, an oblong, 200 paces in length, placed sixteen fathoms above the level of the Liakhvi, running at the foot of the hill on which it stands, is now abandoned, a Chapel in its South-Eastern angle being the only part in use. Gori Fortress was significantly damaged by the earthquake in 1920. The best preserved structure is Tskhra-kara ("the Nine-gated"), which looks to the west, and is adjoined by the supplementary walls on the south and east.

  • Great views of the city, unspoilt and free tourist site..

  • Historical place of Shida-kartli region, near city of Gori.
