The students of “Education Academy” have visited to Racha for two days on April 28 – 29, 2018. In this Cognitive excursion were involved students of all the faculties of the academy – Georgians and Azerbaijanis. The head of the group was Professor Gocha Ochigava. Students saw the sights and architectural monuments of Racha: Nakortsminda built in the 11th century BC and Barakoni built in 1753 according to the Rostom’s (ruler of Racha ) order; Ice Cobbled and the main fortress of Kakhaberadze – Minda fortress. Students were impressed by the stunning sights of the resort Shovi and snowcapped mountains.
