Small Georgian town of Sighnaghi, with a population of about 2 million people, is the center of the historical and geographical region Kiziki, in the historical region of Kakheti. Despite his modesty and distance, now Signakhi mountain - one of the most popular tourist areas in Georgia.

The whole city is located on the terraces, which are connected by steep, winding streets. Very unusual architecture of its buildings - buildings built in the style of Italian classicism, but with traditional Georgian elements. To this day do not know anything about the history of the city`s founding. There are only a few unconfirmed versions, one of which, the city was founded in the 18th century by King Irakli II.

The main attraction of the mysterious Signakhi - its eponymous castle walls that surround the city. With ancient watchtowers amazing views of the Alazani Valley.

There are Signakhi and its museum - The house-museum of the artist Niko Pirosmani. Definitely worth a visit Signagi wine cellar, where you can taste all sorts and purchasing, and visit the small museum of winemaking. Two kilometers from the city is Bodbe monastery .

Signakhi called the "city of lovers." Such a romantic name he received because of his marriage palaces in which to unite their hearts may be citizens of any of the countries of the former Soviet Union, at any time, without an appointment. The winding streets are many whimsical sculptures, souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants. In the center there is a tourist information center.

The little town with its special friendly atmosphere, well-groomed, decorative streets and picturesque nature - it seems so Signakhi. Tbilisi here you can reach by taxi from the station Samgori.
