Prometheus & Sataplia Caves and Jurassic Park Near Kutaisi

Legendary Prometheus who under Greek mythology stole fire from Gods was chained to Khvamli Mountain which can be seen from Prometheus Cave, one of the most colorful place in Georgia. Here you can observe stalactites, stalagmites, underground river and lakes, nice 1.2km walk in mysterious and cool atmosphere and short boat trip if interested.

Prometheus Cave is longer and more impressive than Sataplia Cave but in the latter you can also walk in the woods – enjoyable if its not hot weather, have views to Kutaisi thanks to glass platform overlooking the city and You can also see millions of years old footprints of dinosaurs, take picture with the models of dinosaurs, visit the small museum, see a nice heart-shaped stalagmite. There is a restaurant and some attractions. In short, tourist infrastructure is developed enough. But it is still not comparable to Prometheus cave if your primary interest is to see a cave. You might find both worth the trip, but if you have to choose one, I would go for the first one. Sataplia’s name is derived from wild bees which lived in this territory.

How to get there: 

Prometheus Cave: Take a bus from the main station to Tskaltubo, from there there are buses to the cave. Each costs 1 GEL. Entrance fee to the cave is 10GEL but you need to add extra 7 GEL for boat trip in Prometheus Cave. For more info please visit.
