Chiatura, the beauty of Upper Imereti lies in the steep valleys and deep canyons around  the Kvirila river. The city which has an exceptional charm because of relief and a distinctive form of public transport. Take a step back in time, get a feel what it was like during a days of Communism in a city that it was founded as a mining colony, which in the zenith of its own glory, was one of the most developed and successful industrial cities in the world, with its exclusive, exceptional surroundings, varied and spectacular nature, with unique historical monuments, monasteries and churches.
Chiatura is attractive for its cable cars (in this city was built the first passenger cable car in the USSR 1954), which have become a symbol of the city and which are generally used as the main  free public transport in the city.
