Gergeti Trinity Church Named Among the Most Beautiful Churches in the World

In an article published on December 27, Gergeti Trinity Church, in Georgia’s Kazbegi region, has been named among the most beautiful churches in the world by British newspaper The Telegraph. 

“It is possibly the setting in the green and white Caucasus mountains, below the summit of Kazbegi that makes Gergeti Trinity Church quite so magnificent” the article says. “Dating back from 14th century, it has a separate bell tower, and is often used as a navigation point for trekkers, who make a three-hour mountain climb to reach it. While religious services were banned during the Soviet era, it is once again used as a place of worship,” the piece notes. 

Las Lajas Sanctuary in Colombia, Borgund Stave Church in Norway, Bethlem Church in Iran, Notre Dame du Haut Chapel in France, Viscri Fortified Church in Romania, King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, Church of Saint George, Ethiopia, St Bartlomew’s Church in Germany, the Church of Hallgrimur in Iceland, Russian Orthodox Church of Mary Magdalene in Jerusalem, Sagrada Familia in Spain, the Church of Transfiguration, Kizhi Island Russia, Palatine Chapel in Sicily, Italy, Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, France, St Bartholomew the Great’s Church in London, Felsenkirche in Germany, Church of Dmitry on Blood in Uglich, Russia, Church of Saint Stephanos, Iran, Church of Nativity, West Bank, Matthias Church in Hungary, Thorncrown Chapel, USA and Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood in St Petersburg, Russia are all on the list.
