Salkhino is a small village in Georgia that would never be famous if a residence of Georgian dukes Dadiani wasn’t built here. Today we’ll get a chance to visit the magical place.
Nobody today can explain what the purpose of the dam was.
Another river on the way to the residence.
A church was built here in the 17th century. In the 19th century the dukes chose the place to be their residence and after formation of the USSR the residence was abandoned. Now the place is occupied by the Georgian patriarch.
The church was built in 1782. It was empty which is an unusual event for modern Georgia. The access to the place is probably is far from being free.

The vine is stored in the barrels.
The warehouse for wine storage was built in the 19th century.
