The capital of Georgia is hip and trendy. This city on the mighty Kura River appears on every up-to-date world hotspot list. A rich history, a mix of cultures and a sharp contrast between old and new give this city its unique vibe. Tblisi is bound to steal your heart.
Just outside of Tbilisi the towns of Kazbegi and Mtscheta will spoil you for views. Soon you will find yourself hiking up the slopes, leaving the city behind. The Trinity Church locate at 2,170 m altitude offers fabulous views of what is said to be one of the largest glaciers in the Caucasus.
Climb the hill and behold the Jvari monastery and its stunning views of Mtscheta and the surrounding mountain chain. A thoroughly different experience are the views of and from the Tblisi beautifully illuminated Bridge of Peace. Spanning the Kura River it is the city’s real eye catcher. Fancy some classical music? The Palishvili Opera House is the place to be for anyone who is fond of opera and ballet. Want to rest your weary legs? Why not head to one of the many cafes on Rustaveli Avenue, Tblisi’s main avenue.
