The capital city of Georgia, Tbilisi is a historic city that dates back to the fifth century. Through all these years, the city’s old town has managed to stay fairly intact, offering its visitors a chance to step back into time while walking through its old cobbled streets and ancient cathedrals.
The city is served by Tbilisi International Airport
, located some 20 kilometers outside of the city center and easily accessible by all forms of public transportation.
The Tbilisi city center offers many opportunities for a culturally-enriching experience, with all the museums and art galleries easy to reach by foot while the cafes and boutiques provide the perfect entertainment backdrop to the art-filled streets of this charming city. For a little bit of history, head to the ancient Narikala Fortress
. The fortress was built in the fourth century, and still stands overlooking the city of Tbilisi and the river which runs through the city. In addition to being a historically significant site, Narikala is a great place from which to enjoy spectacular city views. Right in the center of Tbilisi is the iconic Sioni Cathedral
, a stunning place of worship that has enjoyed a significant place in the role of Orthodox Christianity in Georgia for centuries. The intricate design and religious significance of the cathedral make it an important stop on an exploration of Tbilisi.
