Overview The ideal introduction for first-time visitors, this private, full-day guided tour of Tbilisi covers the Georgian capital’s most popular attractions. Highlights include a scenic walk through the bustling Old Town, a look at the quirky antiques for sale at the city’s flea market, a visit to:
The historical heart of the city, Metekhi is a must-see for any visitor to Tbilisi. King Vakhtang Gorgasali erected the first church here in the 5th century when he started to build this new capital city. The Metekhi Church of Assumption dates to c.1278 but it has been damaged and restored several times since.
The new recreation complex on Rike Square covers 10 hectrares in the historic district of Tbilisi. It features a map of Georgia in which regions are connected to each another via pedestrian pathways. There is an Amphitheatre and children’s square too. The park is distinguished with its dancing and musical fountains, designed by a Spanish architect.
Straddling the Mtkvari river in Tbilisi, Georgia, is a new pedestrian bridge, courtesy of Italian architect Michel De Lucchi and French lighting director Philippe Martinaud. The 150m structure is composed of galss and steel and connects Old Tbilisi with the new district. The bridge provides a unique view of Old Tbilisi. It also possesses an interactive light display system with 30,000 LEDs and 240 sensors installed within the structure able to convey specific messages, scrolled across the two parapets of the bridge every hour.
An ancient citadel overlooking the capital and the Mtkvari river. In the 4th century the fortress was known as Shuris-tsikhe(“Invidious Fort”) and was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by King David the Builder. The Mongols renamed it “NarinQala” (“Little Fortress” in Persian).
No visit to Tbilisi is complete without a visit to the world famous Sulfur Baths, located in Old Tbilisi. Known for their calming, relaxing effect a deep sulfur spring feeds the city with naturally heated mineral water, and bath houses have proliferated here for over a thousand years, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to wash away the stresses of the day.
- Bamba (Cotton) Row and Chardin Street
Once part of the Old Tbilisi bazzar, Chardin Street and the arched Bamba Row even now from a true Diagon Alley of the Georgian Capital. The Streets offer the best night-life, restaurants, cafes and bars in the city and hosts local open air festivals, concerts and galleries throughout the year.
The main Cathedral of the Georgian Orthodox Church can be seen from various points in the city and is a wonderful sight. This magnificent ensemble was built where the Church of St. Elias once stood and was consecrated on 3 March 1996.
Mtatsminda Park is a famous landscaped park located at the top of Mount Mtatsminda overlooking the Georgian capital Tbilisi. The park has carousels, water slides, a roller-coaster, funicular, and a big Ferris Wheel at the edge of the mountain, offering a splendid view over the city.
