Wedding venues in Kazbegi

Kazbegi stands out for its unique beauty: here, among the rocky mountains, two thousand kilometers above sea level, the famous Trinity Church is floating. Its obscure silhouette is majestically towering in front of the mighty Kazbek, which became the most recognizable image not just of Stepantsminda townlet (known as Kazbegi), but of the entire Georgia. In our new special feature, which is dedicated to this legendary place, we talk about the main advantages of Kazbegi in terms of arranging weddings and visit the best hotels suitable for it.

Why Kazbegi?

The townlet Stepantsminda is just a 3,5 hours ride away from Tbilisi, not far from the border between Russia and Georgia. This makes it the most popular place for tourists who dream of seeing the mountains of Georgia. There is another feature that makes this townlet famous: the legendary mountain Kazbek, the main peak of the Great Caucasus. The mountain and the adjoining spines are framing Stepantsminda, forming a high wall around the entire perimeter of the valley. This beautiful unique landscape lets you admire the splendid mountains from any spot of the townlet. During daytime, Kazbek might hide beneath the smoky clouds covering its top, so guests who manage to meet Kazbek in clear weather are the luckiest ones.

A stunning view of the mountain is supplemented by the majestic silhouette of the Trinity Church in Gergeti, which is standing alone on a high spine at the foot of Kazbek. For centuries, it has kept the holy secret of solitude, light and silence. Stepping inside the church, you become part of the purest holiness. You find yourself thinking of the beloved ones and praying for the most meaningful and innermost matters. Linger a bit on the platform in front of the church, cast a glance at the town from above and feel that powerful energy that imbue this place.

Gergeti Church provides an opportunity to have a religious ceremony, which is the key argument in favor of this location for the couples who dream of a Georgian church wedding. Marriage ceremony held among the breathtaking Caucasus range will remain one of the most meaningful and soulful memories for the rest of your life.

It is necessary to note that we recommend you to arrange your wedding in Kazbegi in July or August, as during the rest of the year the weather is less favorable here. Mountain climate in general and in Kazbegi in particular is almost always very unpredictable: morning can start with clear skies, but a couple of hours later rain clouds already gather in the sky. That is why we always work out plan B in case it rains, and move ceremony and dinner into the hotel halls if necessary. Such scenario may not always correspond with your dreams about outdoor wedding, but we always take care of your comfort and we have to relate wedding day schedule to the changeable weather in the mountains. In any case, your impression from the celebration will not be spoiled!

In Kazbegi we’d like to visit four best hotels suitable for cozy holidays among the silent peaks. We’ll start from the smaller hotels and finish with Georgia’s most popular hotel, which you’ve probably heard of.
