Perched in the charming village of Chuneshi, close to Tskaltubo, sits a house-museum that whispers tales of a past era. This isn't just any house. It's the abode of Niko Lortkipanidze, a name that resonates with eloquence and sagacity in Georgian literary circles.

Born in 1888, Niko's journey as a writer, journalist, and publicist brimmed with observations of his world, culminating in writings that touched the very soul of Georgian culture. His astute, critical realist approach made him not only a popular writer but also a voice that mirrored society's intricacies.

Spread across six enchanting buildings, the house-museum is an adventure waiting to unfold. Imagine wandering through rooms that house over a thousand artifacts! Each item, whether a handwritten note, a worn-out typewriter, or a personal belonging, tells a story. The walls adorned with photos and documentary materials invite visitors to take a peek into the life and times of this literary maestro.

And while you're in the neighborhood, don't forget to visit the nearby Giorgi Akhvlediani House-Museum in the village of Derchi. Here, the echoes of another great Georgian, an academician, are preserved through his cherished possessions.

It's not just a visit; it's a step back in time. So, the next time you're around Tskaltubo, make a little detour. Discover, learn, and immerse yourself in the magical world of Georgian legends.
