2010 TOUR OF GEORGIA AND ARMENIA

The RSAA's first ever tour to the Caucasus.

When?
26 September - 6 October 2010
Where?
Georgia and Armenia

This was the first ever visit by the Society to the Caucasus region, specifically to Georgia and then Armenia. The main historical focus was on their churches and monasteries and the development of Christianity, often against the odds, following its introduction to both countries in the 4th c A.D. The 23 strong party went first to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia before making visits to a number of monasteries and towns including Gori, Stalin’s birthplace, and Kasbegi. In Armenia the tour started at Lake Sevan, then visited several other destinations before finally reaching the capital Yerevan.
