Stepantsminda is a townlet in the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region of north-eastern Georgia, which is famous for its hilltop silhouette of Tsminda Sameba Church and the towering snowy cone of Mt Kazbek looking down from the west. Now officially named Stepantsminda, but still commonly known as Kazbegi, it’s a base for some wonderful walking and mountain-biking.
The main attraction in Stepantsminda is the Gergeti Trinity Church, a humble 14th century church that is perched high on a mountain peak. It has a lot of importance in Georgian history.
The church itself is not the most spectacular or architecturally stunning building you’ll see in Georgia – but it’s location that makes it special. It is perched 2200m high on a mountain overlooking the small village of Stepantsminda, surrounded by towering snowy peaks on all sides.
