Racha-Lechkhumi and Lower Svaneti is a region in northwestern Georgia which includes the historical provinces of Racha, Lechkhumi and Lower Svaneti. Cultural monuments and strong traditions have been passed down through the generations in here. They still maintain ancient traditions of vineyards and winemaking, just as they were described in ancient Greek and Roman writing. Historical sources first mention this region in the 6th c. BC.

Departure to Racha-Lechkhumi region, on the way we will make a stop near the banks of picturesque Shaori lake.
Upon arrival to Racha, and enjoying the the nature, you will visits:
Nikortsminda, built in 1010-1014 during the reign of Bagrat III of Georgia and was repaired in 1634 by the King Bagrat III of Imereti. Three-storied bell-tower next to the Cathedral was built in the second half of the 19th century. Frescoes inside the Cathedral date from the 17th century.
Barakoni Church of the Mother of God was commissioned, in 1753, by the local lord (eristavi) Rostom of Racha (1750-1769) from the architect Avtandil Shulavreli.
