Samtredia in a municipality located in Imereti. This place is also mentioned in ancient historical sources from the second half of the XVIII century as the village of Samtredia. Since 1872, after the Poti-Tbilisi railway has started functioning, it was referred to as Daba Samtredia. There was a time, when the floodplain of the district was a swampy forest. The climate was so bad that nobody wanted to settle there. The construction of the railway has contributed to the development of Samtredia, the marshes were dried up, the forest turned into field and the climate improved. Its transformation into a small town ended in 1999, when the industry grew especially. The territory of the district was previously united with Colchis and Egris, and then with the kingdom of Egris-Abkhazia and the United State of Georgia. Samtredia is a very beautiful district, where we find many interesting cultural monuments.
