They say a picture paints a thousand words, and I just could not sum up my trip to Tbilisi, Georgia in words. This city has such a rustic, untouched charm to it that can only be portrayed in pictures. And since I’ve had a bit of a writer’s block for a while now, I’ll let the pictures do the talking while I write up my bumper guide on Tbilisi ’cause I just want everyone to be able to experience this stunning country 🙂
I hope you enjoy Tbilisi through my eyes.
Tbilisi Old Town
Tbilisi’s city hall is one of the newer looking buildings amongst the vintage facades in the city, although it went through a refurbishment in the early 1900s.
Due to lack of resources and town funding, the buildings in Tbilisi’s Old Town look like they’re in need of a little sprucing up, but definitely lends to its own unique charm.
The Bridge of Peace and Narikala Fortress
Just across the Bridge of Peace is the cable car station that will take you up Narikala Fortress, where you’ll get a stunning view of the city. Definitely worth a trip especially during sunset.
A visit to Tbilisi is hardly complete without a trip to one of the many sulfur baths dotting the old city. It’s the perfect way to end the day with some much-deserved pampering.
Set in a former Soviet sewing factory, Fabrika houses a hostel and a variety of cafés and shops, perfect for the traveling hipster.
Tbilisi Dry Bridge Market
Chronicles of Georgia
About 20 minutes from the city, you’ll find Chronicles of Georgia, a monument depicting the history of Georgia. Looking like a set straight right from a sci-fi movie, you’ll also enjoy views of the Tbilisi sea.
On the way back to the city, you must stop by Gardenia Shevardnadze, a botanic gardens with a tiny coffeehouse serving up the best khachapuri* we had on our trip! (*Georgian cheese-filled bread)
Tbilisi is one of those under-the-radar cities where you can still wander around the city and stumble upon some amazing gems. Hidden inside inconspicuous buildings and alleyways, you’ll find some of the best treats for your eyes.
I hope these pictures have inspired you to visit this charming old city!
