About Tbilisi - presentation, information, photos and recommendations

The most accepted variant of the Tbilisi foundation legend says that in the middle of the 5th century AD, King Vakhtang I Gorgasali hunted in the area heavily forested with a hawk. The King's hawk caught or injured a pheasant during the hunt, after which both birds fell into a nearby hot spring and died from burns. King Vakhtang became so impressed by the hot springs that he decided to cut down the forest and build a city. The name Tbilisi comes from the Old Georgian word "tbili", which means warm. The archaeological studies of the region indicate the human settlement in the area since the 4th millennium BC.
Tbilisi is the ever-changing city of the South Caucasus and not to be missed, you can explore its many cafes, galleries, museums, bars and the charming city. From the airport, you can reach the city by taxi, train running twice a day or bus, there is a station right in front of the arrival area.
The old city center of Tbilisi is a wonderful place to start exploring and is the place where you will find many worthy sights, including churches and historical monuments and fortresses. The maze of narrow streets offers surprises because you never know where you will end up, be it a bar, bakery or khinkali store.
Also here you will find the Abanotubani neighborhood, a whole street full of public baths that use many hot springs and sulfur in the area. The bathrooms are underground, these communal bathrooms are cheaper and have separate areas for men and women. Relax in the hot pool, in the sauna and take a dip in the cold pool - then repeat.You can also take a cable car ride from Tbilisi. The short but picturesque walk gives you a panoramic view of the old town and Mtkvari river and connects the Rike Park of the city with the Narikala fortress, dating from the 4th century. The walk also puts you near the imposing statue of Mother Georgia (Kartlis Deda statue) and the National Botanical Garden of Georgia.
Tbilisoba is an annual festival in Tbilisi, organized in October and celebrated since 1979. During the festival, things become quite lively and everyone is free. There are outdoor concerts, cultural events, dances, flea markets and wine and food stands.
