Fantastic living museum! Lots of things to see and people to ask questions. Having people living in the houses and sharing their experiences is very cool.

Beautiful town, with lots of viking historical sites.

Interesting place to visit, but dull in the winter time. In summer time it is Viking's working making knives, horse shoes, boat builders, yarn knitting and so much more. Everything is done in the same way as the Viking period.

Was a nice historical centre. Our kid was only 5 months old and in a stroller. Wasn't that hard to push him around on the sandy paths. If I would come back it would be when he is around 4-5 years. Would be very fun for him then.

Awesome experience !!! Full of information to gain and wonderful activities to do as well like shooting arrows, jewelry making, and a bird show. Highly recommended. It really shows how Vikings once lived and you would fee as if you are in that era.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
