Pushkin described Tbilisi as a “fabulous land”. Georgia’s beautiful capital since the 5th century, through a turbulent history, have survived and managed to be reborn from its ashes. If you wish to explore a city that went through both dark and majestic times, then you should search for cheap air tickets to Tbilisi – it’s worth it! Tbilisi may lack the typical charm of a city-break destination, yet it has so much to offer to visitors. At the banks of River Mtkvari, elegant skyline, idyllic alleys, old bookshops of the Old Town, museums and theatres await you; all these surrounded by the friendly atmosphere and true welcoming spirit of the locals. Not to mention the exquisite, mouth-watering Georgian cuisine! Make your plans and organise your accommodation in one of the many cheap hotels of Tbilisi, but please hurry, before international travellers discover this hidden gem!
At the crossroad of Europe and Asia, the mountain of Russia’s southern borders, Tbilisi is the proud capital of Georgia. The path to the 21st century has not been an easy one for Tbilisi. After the Golden Era of the city’s founding, the Mongols came; and then the Russians. Internal disagreements weren’t much of a help either, leading to a civil war that kept Tbilisi from developing. It all ended with the Rose Revolution and the fall of the last Soviet leader, in 2003.
Unlike what you may think, Tbilisi is anything but a lost city. On the contrary, it is essential for you to know the city’s long history, so as to understand and evaluate its true beauty and culture.
Tbilisi, with a population of 1,500,000 is growing at an exponential rate. Culture, history and delicious food are some of the reasons why most visitors fall in love with this extraordinary destination.
If you wish to know more, be sure to book your flights to Tbilisi, ahead of the mass tourist waves that are soon about to discover it!
The airport of Tbilisi is located 17 kilometres southeast of the city centre and is accessible by bus and train.
Getting around Tbilisi
You can get around Tbilisi by metro (2 lines), tram and bus. Fares start at 0.20 GEL and minimum taxi fare costs 1.33 GEL.
Your day in Tbilisi begins at the Old Town. Feel free to get lost as you wander around the tiny streets and quaint paths of the old town and enjoy a beautiful skyline of traditional wooden houses, typical of the Eurasian style.
- The Narikala Fortress looms over Tbilisi’s Old Town, guarding the city since the 4th century, when it was built as a Persian castle. In front of the castle walls, you will notice a statue 20 metres tall.
The female figure it depicts is Kartvlis Deda. With a sword on one hand and a glass of wine on the other, she symbolises the country of Georgia; courageously fighting enemies and kindheartedly welcoming friends.
- The Anchiskhati Basilica is one of Tbilisi’s most notable churches, dating back to the 6th century and built in the traditional medieval Georgian architecture
- Tbilisi’s most important religious site is none other than the Holy Trinity Cathedral (Tsminda Sameba). Rising to a height of 85 metres, the cathedral symbolises the religious revival that followed the fall of the Soviet Regime.
- Up next, the Parliament of Georgia is a place of major historical importance, as it’s the place where the Independence of Georgia was declared; and when the Rose Evolution took place, in 2003.
The Museum of Georgia is not to be missed; collections focus on the history of Georgia and include archaeological findings and treasures discovered around the area, as well as the first human remains ever to have been found outside Africa!
Finally, don’t leave Tbilisi without tasting at least some of the delicacies of the Georgian cuisine. Food here is sacred, so why not indulge in a khinkali or a couple of chachapuris? Accompanied of course by a fine Georgian wine!
The official language of Tbilisi is Georgian.
