Cave of Prometheus

The Cave of Prometheus (Kumistavi Cave) is located near Kutaisi. This 1,600-meter-long cave was discovered in 1984. For several decades, one of the locals was guarding it from vandals. There is a monument to him and his dog near the exit of the cave.

In 2010, the President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili visited the cave, ordered to arrange a tourist site here and offered the name, Prometheus Cave. It is believed that the mythological hero Prometheus was chained to the mountains around this area.

From all the caves we've ever seen, this one has the most beautiful illumination. At the end of the hiking trail you can continue on a boat, just buy an extra ticket at the cash desk.

Unlike in many European caves, you can take photos here.

Getting there: The nearest large city is Kutaisi. From Kutaisi you need to go to the Tshaltubo town by minibus, then by taxi to the cave. It's much more convenient to travel by taxi directly from Kutaisi. The round trip will cost $20-25. Kutaisi can be reached by minibus from the Didube bus station in Tbilisi (4 hours to go, $6).

The cave is not working on Monday. From November to April - from 10 am to 5 pm, from May to August from 10 am to 6 pm, in September and October from 10 am to 5:30 pm. The ticket costs $3.3, the boat trip costs $4.
