TBILISI TRAVEL GUIDE – WHERE TO GO?

MUSEUMS
The brief review of Tbilisi
Entrance fee for Adults is 3-7 GEL (Prices vary according to a museum)

OLD TBILISI AREA
Old Tbilisi’s real soul can be explored in a diversity of wooden balconies. You can often come across
houses built in Baroque and Rococo style, but here I will focus on the wooden “hanging” balconies.
The houses in this district are characterized by deep, elaborately carved, wooden balconies painted
white, ochre, pale blue, and cinnamon. Sometimes the balconies are cantilevered from the front of the
facade; sometimes they wrap around three sides.
Balconies, usually taking the form of glassed-in verandas, are also found facing the inner courtyard.
Exterior spiral staircases-often of metal, with the treads worn paper thin-join one story to another.
Both balcony and courtyard reflect the Georgian love of company, of sharing one's life with friends
and neighbors!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Narikhala Fortress
If you want to have the best holidays in your life you should definitely travel in Georgia and spend
your time in old Tbilisi.
Narikala Fortress is located in old Tbilisi, is an ancient symbol of Tbilisi’s defensive brilliance. The
fortress walls date from various periods, the earliest from the 4th century, when it was a Persian
citadel. The foundation of the towers and most of it present walls were built in the 8th century by the
Arab emirs who had a palace inside the fortress.
The surviving stone towers of Narikala remain the silent witnesses of the ancient city’s history!
Metekhi Church
If you want to explore true Georgian spirit than you should have a walk in old Tbilisi area.
Virgin Mary Metekhi church is located on the left bank of the river Mtkvari, on the cliff plateau , the
first church on this place was probably built by Vakhtang Gorgasali symbolically resembling the
church built on virgin Mary’s tomb in Gethsemane garden in Jerusalem.

Flea Market
This extraordinary flea market will keep you entertained for hours. There is a mesmerizing
assortment of antiques, jewelry and bric-a- brac on sale. If you want to buy anything remember to
haggle. Prices may be inflated, especially for tourists. Open daily if the weather is good, from 10:00 –
17:00. At weekends there are usually more sellers, but more tourists too.
