Experience Chiatura, one of the strangest towns in the area around Tbilisi - a place hidden between rocky cliffs, where miners commute by Soviet-era cable cars - the oldest among all post-Soviet countries. The bizarre landscapes, abandoned factories, and concrete buildings create a strange and mysterious scenery perfect for urban explorers and photographers.
