It’s not entirely a festival, more of a one-day celebration. But Mtskhetoba-Svetitskhovloba is one of the most important public holidays in the country. Marked on October 14 each year, the event takes places in Mtskheta, and the origin can be traced back to the miraculous acquisition of Jesus Christ’s tunic – Georgia’s most significant relic.
