Tbilisi

Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia and the historical center of the Caucasus, is among the oldest cities in the world.

Tbilisi occupies an eponymous basin in Eastern Georgia , standing on both banks of the Mtkvari River, at 380-600 from the sea level. King Bagrat IV fought for its liberation, but many of his attempts proved unsuccessful. In 1122, King David IV the Builder managed to liberate the city from foreign lordship and made it the capital of united Georgia by moving the seat of his power there.

Today Tbilisi proudly stands as a capital of independent Georgia and gradually reassumes its dominant role in the region by both preserving the historically established attitudes and traditions as well as becoming a modern European metropolis.

Tbilisi, the Georgian heaven, a larger-than-life city standing on cultural crossroads with doors eternally open to guests… this place knows no peers in hospitality, and leaving it inevitably fills one with sadness and an irresistible desire to come back.

Georgians themselves need no convincing – simply wandering through our capitals streets is a pastime that never gets boring.
