"The narrowest part of the valley, is still redolent of an ancient Eurasian crossroads"

Meidan –

the oldest place of the city. From here you will visit the place named Abanotubani - famous for its complex of baths, standing on natural sulfur sources. You will find hidden waterfall behind those sulfur bath houses.

From the beautiful Rike Park by the ropeway you will get to the fortress named Narikala – an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi.The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel.

Then you may visit Shardeni street. An amazing place to spend some time with friends.. Bars and street cafes with nice music and lots of people around.. Lifefull and soulfull  street of Tbilisi.

Mtatsminda Park is a famous landscaped park located at the top of Mount Mtatsminda overlooking the Georgian capital Tbilisi. The park has carousels, water slides, a roller-coaster, funicular, and a big Ferris Wheel at the edge of the mountain, offering a splendid view over the city.

Shopping: 

East Point Tbilisi is multi-function shopping mall with all entertainment facilities, kids club, hypermarket, electronics stores and a home improvement (DIY) megastore, flanked by cafes, restaurants, fast food outlets, cinema and more than 150 branded shops. 

 

But the old Tbilisi is still very much here too. The Old Town, at the narrowest part of the valley, is still redolent of an ancient Eurasian crossroads, with its winding lanes, balconied houses, leafy squares and handsome churches, all overlooked by the 17-centuries-old Narikala Fortress. Neighbourhoods not far from the centre still retain a village-like feel with their narrow streets, small shops and community atmosphere. Small traders still clog up the pavements around metro stations selling fruit, vegetables, cheese and nuts fresh from the countryside.

 

The bus stations are still rooted in about the 1930s, too – but you can't have everything. Modern and ancient, Tbilisi remains the beating heart of the South Caucasus and should not be missed by any visitor.
