Geguti Castle

Geguti castle is located on the bank of the Rioni River, 7 km south of Kutaisi. It was a royal residence however today only ruins remain. The earliest information about it is in a tale "The Life of King Vakhtang Gorgasali" written by a Georgian prince and historian Juansher Juansheriani in the 8th century. In one of the paragraphs of the tale Archil - the Prince of Kartli mentions that he is moving to Kutaisi to Geguti fortress. The castle stretches for 2000 square kilometers. Its first plan was drawn by a Swiss historian and archeologist Frédéric Dubois de Montpéreux in 1833. Over 60 artefacts were found on the territory of the castle during fieldworks conducted in 1937 by a Professor Levan Muskhelishvili, an architect V. Tsilosani and a photographer Gilgendorf.


Village Partskanakanevi is located on Imereti lowland 15 km from Tskaltubo. It is for the first time mentioned in historical resources in 12th century, under the name Parsmanakanevi.

Among them were: cornelian necklace, the golden temple decorations, bronze tableware, gold round 4 beads, 1 hollow spherical bead. These items are close to Nosiri treasure.
