SEP

Annual Literary Festival

Tbilisi, Georgia's capital city, is the country's vibrant, beating heart. The ancient city, which sprawls along the banks of the Kura River, was founded in the 5th century by the former Georgian king Vakhtang 1 and has since grown into a thriving cultural hotspot.

Tbilisi, with its dramatic valley setting, is one of Georgia's most visually stunning cities. Narrow cobblestone alleyways wind their way through the charming old town, passing centuries-old structures along the way. The contemporary building's crafty, bohemian architecture, combined with the ornate charm of Tbilisi's churches, boasts a beauty not found anywhere else.

Exploring Tbilisi's many medieval churches is one of the best ways to learn about the city's heritage and culture. Each cathedral in Tbilisi, whether the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral or the Holy Trinity Cathedral, is more beautiful than the other. Other architectural gems in the city include the neoclassical Bridge of Peace and the quirky Clock Tower building in the city center.

When in Tbilisi, don't miss out on a walking tour of the Old Town, which is filled with colorful bohemian buildings and quirky cafes. You could also go to the Dry Bridge flea market and stake your claim on some fantastic locally made items. As an added luxury, you could take a Sulphur bath at Tbilisi's Royal Bath House, which is known for its therapeutic bath experiences.

Tbilisi has pleasant weather all year. Summer months, from May to September, are generally warm and clear, whereas the longer winter months are very cold and cloudy.

Frequently Asked Questions

The must-see attractions in Tbilisi are Old Town Tbilisi, Narikala Fortress, Tbilisi International Airport, Anchiskhati Basilica and Rike Park.

Georgians speak Georgian, English (which is quickly becoming the second most widely spoken language), and Russian. The older generation only speaks Russian and Georgian, while the younger generation mostly speaks English and Georgian, though you can now communicate with people there in English.

While there are some iconic landmarks to pose in front of, you can also visit some of Tbilisi's best secret Instagrammable spots, such as Abanotubani, Narikala Fortress, Orbeliani Bath, Kaleidoscope House, Freedom Square, Rike Park, Mirza Shafi street and blue house.

Many people wonder how many days are sufficient to spend in Tbilisi, and while we would honestly recommend spending up to one week in the city (there is so much to see and do! ), I would say that if you want to get the most out of the city and get a sense of its history and culture, plan to spend 3 days.

A blend of Caucus and Persian traditions produces mouth-watering dishes which can be enjoyed throughout Tbilisi such as Khachapuri, Khinkali, Lobio, Pkhali/Mkhali, Nigvziani Badrijani, Kharcho, Shashlik kebabs and Chakapuli.

Visitors to Tbilisi have numerous transportation options, including taxis, metros, cars, and minibuses. Taxis are one of the best ways to get around the city because they are available almost everywhere. Fares are very low and should never cost more than a few dollars.

Georgia is best visited in May, June, or September, especially in the lowlands around Tbilisi, to avoid the summer heat and humidity as well as the freezing winter. Autumn harvest time is well worth mentioning, especially in Kakheti's vineyards.

A foreign national seeking to enter Georgia must generally obtain a Georgian visa, which is either placed in the traveler's passport (a visa blank) or issued electronically (electronic visa)
