Filming Vardzia Cave City, Georgia

Written on October 5, 2012


Vardzia is a cave monastery in southern Georgia, excavated from the slopes of the Erusheti Mountain. There are 427 rooms in total. The monastery dates back to the 12th century.

Tbilisi is the capital and main production centre a 3hr drive away where all local crew and equipment come from. Crews can be based at Aspindza 20mins drive away.

Permits are required from the National Agency for Cultural Heritage. The process is generally inexpensive and easy.

April to October is the best time of year to film for good weather and long daylight.
