Visit Tbilisi

Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, is a vibrant city with a fascinating history that can be seen in its architecture and culture. Located on the banks of the Kura River, it has a diverse mix of old and new buildings from its many eras. Its Old Town is filled with cobbled streets and 19th-century buildings that truly make it feel like you've stepped back in time.

Visiting tourists should make sure to visit Narikala Fortress for an amazing view of the city as well as explore some of its other historical monuments such as Sioni Cathedral, Anchiskhati Basilica and Tsminda Sameba Cathedral. Other must-see sites include Rustaveli Avenue for shopping and leisurely strolls along the riverfront promenade.

An interesting historical fact about Tbilisi is that it was founded on what was once believed to be an ancient pagan site chosen by King Vakhtang Gorgasali in 5th century AD. Today it still retains much of its charm while being a modern metropolis with lively entertainment venues, green parks, museums and art galleries making it an exciting place to visit year round!
