3:30 pm - Trinity church
Holy Trinity Cathedral: The idea to construct a new cathedral to celebrate the 2,000th anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ and the 1,500th anniversary of the autocephaly of the Georgian Orthodox Church originated in 1989, a pivotal year in the national awakening of the then-Soviet republic of Georgia. The Georgian Orthodox Patriarchate and Tbilisi's government launched a worldwide competition for the "Holy Trinity Cathedral" design in May 1989.
When the first round of the competition ended with over a hundred proposals submitted, no one was declared the winner. At long last, Archil Mindiashvili's plan has triumphed. Following six years of postponement due to civil upheaval in Georgia, the new cathedral's cornerstone was finally laid on November 23, 1995.
The chapel was built with the help of primarily anonymous contributions from a variety of companies and regular residents and was heralded as a "symbol of the Georgian national and spiritual resurgence." During a ceremony on St. George's Day (November 23), 2004, the cathedral was consecrated by the Catholicos Patriarch of Georgia, Ilia II, in the presence of many dignitaries from other Orthodox churches.
4:15 - Funicular - the last experience of your Tbilisi city tour
The first trip on the Tbilisi Funicular, which opened on March 27, 1905, cost money because passengers were so afraid to go on.
As a result of the Russian Revolution of 1917, plans to construct Upper Tbilisi were abandoned. Once an amusement park was built atop Mtatsminda in the 1930s, Soviet citizens had a new reason to use the funicular.
Located 770 meters above sea level, Mtatsminda Park is a recreational area that looks out over Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Tbilisi's Mtatsminda Park is a popular destination for leisure activities.
A new upper station funicular was built between 1936 and 1938. (Authors: Z. and N. Kurdiani; co-author: A. Valabuev). The cityscape always includes this same structure. There are now a number of excellent eateries, including the upscale Funicular, located inside the upper station structure. The ballroom on the second level has a panoramic view of Tbilisi by Koka Ignatov.
