Kojori is about 20 kilometers southwest of Tbilisi. There are houses, the medieval Kojori Fortress (also known as Agarani or Azeuli Fortress) and breathtaking Kojori forest. The earliest layers of the fortress date back to the late 11th century. A monument to the Georgian Junkers (cadets) who died in the battle (The Red Army’s invasion of Georgia in February 1921) was erected on the site in the 1990s. Kojori forest is one of the best places for chilling out near Tbilisi, especially in Autumn when nature is most beautiful.
