Petra Fortress

The ruins of the ancient historical city-fortress of Petra are located on the territory of the village Tsikhisdziri. The fortress dates back to the 6th century CE. Historically it used to be the settlement territory for one of the Kartvelian tribes known as the Laz people. Owing to its exceptional military-strategic and trade-economic location, the Byzantine Emperor Justinian built a city here. An important road passed through the city connecting Western Georgia, Byzantine provinces, Iran and Armenia. Coastline navigation was also very well developed. By the Midle Ages, Petra Fortress had become so impregnable that it was called the “Kajeti Fortress”.

Gonio-Apsaros Fortress-Museum

Gonio-Apsaros Fortress (I century) is located 12 km south to Batumi, on the left bank of the River Chorokhi. One of Georgia’s most ancient settlements was located around this fortress. Due to its strategic location, Gonio Fortress became a supporting citadel first for the Romans and later to the Byzantians and Ottomans along the eastern Black Sea coastline.

Respectively, the fortress has several layers: the Roman layer (3rd-4th centuries BCE), the Byzantine layer (6th-7th centuries CE) and the Ottoman layer (16th century CE). The history of Gonio-Apsaros fortress has ties to the myth of Jason and the Argonauts. According to the legend, King Aeetes buried his son Apsaros, who was killed by Jason as he fled, in the territory of Gonio. In addition, according to some sources, Mathias, 1 of 12 disciples of Jesus Christ, is believed to be buried there. There is also a museum inside the fortress.

The museum reserve was founded in 1994. The area comprises the Gonio-Apsaros fortress and its surrounding vicinities. Archaeological excavations conducted in this territory have led to the discovery of materials from the Hellenistic period. Public buildings have been found, inside of which various items have been discovered (pottery, bronze, silver, gold, Justinian I coins, and other items). The “Gonio hoard” is especially significant because of its unique jewels, which are presently in the collection of the Ajara State Museum.
