Things To Know About Tbilisi Georgia

Riotous and Anarchic, the capital of Georgia is anything but orderly. Despite this - or because of it - it's one of the best, most strikingly original cities in the world. It represents the epitome of east meets west: A silk road crossroads where Arab, Ottoman, Mongol, and Russian imperial forces each left their own distinctive cultural mark.

Tbilisi Georgia

Tbilisi was once a labyrinth of crumbling art Nouveau Palaces and decaying, overgrown balconies. In the aftermath of the country's brief, devastating 2008 war with Russia, waves of foreign investment have transformed Georgia into a model of frenetic development.

Tbilisi's anarchically Bohemian Spirit still suffuses its historic districts where traditional Georgian experiences, like the 24 hour sulphur baths, shouldn't be missed. Before you depart, indulge in Georgian dishes like Khinkali (Hat-Shaped Dumplings) stuffed with cheese, mushrooms, or a spicy pork and beef mixture, and Churchkhela, a snack of nuts rolled in thickened grape juice. Experience Tbilisi's authentic charms before sprawling developments forever change this bustling metropolis.
