On the Black Sea coast of Georgia, a new attraction has opened for visitors – the ancient Byzantine fortress of Petra. How it was arranged for tourists, see the video Sputnik Georgia

Petra is a historical fortress in the Egris kingdom (an ancient Georgian kingdom in the west of the country). This territory, which had a unique military-strategic and trade-economic location, was historically the settlement of one of the ancient Kartvelian tribes – the Laz.

The fortress of Petra was built by order of the Byzantine emperor Justinian. After a long siege, the well-fortified city was captured by the Persians under the command of Khosrov I. The Persians eventually lost the war, but the Byzantines decided to destroy the fortress so that the enemy could not take possession of it in the future.

Two million lari (588 thousand US dollars) were allocated from the Georgian budget for the restoration work, which began in 2018.
