St. Nicholas Church, Tbilisi

When we asked our Facebook fans what city we should feature on our website, Buba Radiani recommended Tbilisi, Georgia. Here, St. Nicholas Church sits amid the ruins of the fourth-century Narikala Fortress in the Georgian capital. The original St. Nicholas, built in the 13th century, was destroyed by fire and replaced with a replica in the 1990s. The battlements of the surrounding fortress afford panoramic views of the Silk Road city.
