Petra Fortress

Petra is a fortress located on the sea shores of the Black Sea, between the resort Tsikhisdziri and town Kobuleti, Adjara province, West Georgia.

Fort is situated on a hill, from where the beautiful views over the Black Sea and Kobuleti beach is open for the visitors. Petra held an important strategic position at the crossroads of the route linking Georgia with Asia.

Nowadays, the complex integrates the ruins of the fortress and a 200-meter long and 100-meter wide citadel, located on two neighboring rocky seaside hills, a large 6th-century three-nave basilica, as well as the remains of an urban settlement: a bathhouse, water cistern, more than 300 burials of Late Bronze, Hellenistic, Roman, and medieval periods.
