Tsughrughasheni Church

Bolnisi, Georgia

Tsughrughasheni is a Georgian Orthodox church in the Bolnisi District, Georgia. It is situated approximately 2 kilometres from Bolnisi Sioni basilica, on the right bank of the Bolnisistsqali River. The church was built in 1212–1222 supposedly by King George IV Lasha of the Bagrationi Dynasty.

The Tsughrughasheni church resembles stylistically the other Georgian churches from the 12th–13th centuries – Betania, Kvatakhevi, Pitareti – but it is smaller than those and has a higher cupola. The plan of the church is right-angled. The church is rich with the Georgian traditional ornaments adorned.

ულამაზესი ადგილია. ულამაზესი ტაძარი მაღალი დონის ჩუქურთმებით დამუშავებული გუმბათის ყელი. კარგი გარემოა სულიერი სიმშვიდის მოპოვებისთვის. წლებია აქ სამონასტრო ცხოვრება აღდგა. ცხოვრობენ ბერები და მორჩილები. ტაძრის ჩუქურთმები ნაცნობია სხვადასხვა უძველესი ტაძრებიდან.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
