Introducing Tbilisi


The new part of the city is characterized by its crowded streets, traffic, and debris from construction and modernization. Evidence of Tbilisi’s desire to move forward can be seen all around through its ambitious construction and renovation projects, which include parks, museums, a cathedral, and a presidential palace. Alongside these flagship construction projects are Soviet modernist architecture and old, crowded markets. Tbilisi, however, is a city of two tales. Nestled in the narrowest part of the valley is Old Tblisis. Still reminiscent of pre-Soviet Georgia, a stroll around this area reveals winding lanes lined with traditional balconied buildings; bustling bars and cafes; quaint, lush green squares; and historical churches. Keeping watch over the old town is the Narikala Fortress, which dates to the 4th century when the area was a Persian citadel. Tbilisi is a must-see to experience the pulse of the Southern Caucasus.
