Vardzia is one of the main attractions of Georgia: high rock towers above the Kura river, dozens of natural and handmade caves. The settlement of Vardzia was expanded and landscaped as a city-fortress with many caves. The Assumption Church, a dozen more churches, a library, bathhouses were built in the cave city, a sewage system was laid and the secret passages were extended. Currently, some caves go into the depths of the cliff to many meters, and in the height of the city Vardzia has eight floors.
