The city was founded in the 5th century by King Vakhtang I, and since then it’s the capital of Georgia. It stretches along the river Kura to 40 km. The oldest part of the city – the area of sulfur baths, where the city began, and got its name. They work to this day,it has been 1600 years and visiting them is not just a dip in the hot sulfuric water, but in antiquity with its rules and traditions preserved. There, nearby, lurking: Peach gorge with natural surprise at the end. What? We’ll not say, come and see by yourself. Above baths stands an ancient fortress Narikala, the same age as the city. Right there, side by side, for many centuries, peacefully coexist mosque, synagogue, the Armenian Church, the Orthodox church, a Catholic church and even the temple of fire-worshipers (6c). Buddhists to us, alas, did not get. Over Kura rises Metekhi plateau, which used to be the royal palace, and now stands a monument to King Vakhtang. Opposite him the palace of Queen Darejan. Immediately next to the intersection of the shopping streets Chardin, there now are bohemian cafes, art-salon, nightclubs. Next Sioni Cathedral (7c), the oldest surviving building city- Anchiskhati Basilica (6c), with a clock tower Gabriadze, who at a certain time gives a mini-view, city walls were built with houses on it. Above the town looms Mount Mtatsminda with the church of St. David in the middle. There’s tomb A.S Griboedov and Georgian pantheon of art. On the mountain you will climb the funicular,which is built in 1905. Let’s not talk about everything, just mention that art galleries and historical museums Tbilisi exhibit exhibits some of the best in the solar system.
Tbilisi, the most romantic city of the Caucasus. Here come the lovers,here come here tired tolerate each other people. If you knew what kind of hidden boutiques- cafes, hotels are here!
And for people who have nostalgia for the revolutionary past, say that the museum Avlabari underground press is still running.
