The Sameba cathedral at თბილისი (also called Holy Trinity Cathedral) is a vast modern church in the city quarter Avlabari, located on Elias hill. It was built until 2004 and is the largest church building in Transcaucasia. The church itself is vast, but it is already special by its surroundings: the nine hectares large park around it, the stairs leading from the main gate to the church accompanied by columns showing Christian history. It consists of a campanile and nine chapels dedicated to saints, apostles and archangels. Most beautiful is the impressive mosaic behind the altar.

You can best find Sameba church by going to the Avlabari metro station and then follow the Vladimer Meskhishvili street to the north. When the street turns east you’ll see an entrance building which you can pass to the stairs bringing you to the church. Sameba is enlighted at night and therefore one of the town’s landmarks of თბილისი, very well visible from the history old town or places like Mtatsminda.
