Why Tbilisi?

Tbilisi is the most important city – the heart of small but great Georgia. And it’s not just a beautiful city! Tbilisi – This is a “warm” city in all respects. Do you know that even the ancient name of the city is Tiflis (until 1936) and is translated from Georgian as “warm spring”. It was from the legend of the found hot spring that the history of Tbilisi began.

Tbilisi is a multifaceted city: here narrow old cozy streets coexist with wide modern avenues, buildings in the neo-style of new Georgian architecture step on ancient monasteries and temples, and ancient souvenir shops and centuries-old wine shops with marani (wine cellars) are neighbors of ultra-modern cafes and restaurants and bars.

It is impossible to stay hungry in Georgia! The food here is delicious and satisfying, literally at every step and at very affordable prices. Many residents of Tbilisi periodically go to restaurants to taste their favorite khinkali. An interesting fact is that in different regions of Georgia, a dish with the same name can have a different look and shape, as happened with khachapuri. In Tbilisi, you can find many restaurants, including chains, with an extensive menu offering the whole variety of Georgian dishes.


Ground transport in Tbilisi is represented by buses and minibuses. The fare on the bus costs 0.5 lari (~0.17$), in the minibus -0.8 lari (~0.28$).

By metro, you can get to different parts of the city, including the most remote ones. Recently, residents of Tbilisi use the services of taxi companies through applications on their mobile phones.
