Page under construction

So... Finally I decided to build Tbilisi page and I intend to make it as comprehensive as possible.

What one can say about my city... Well, it definitely is not Paris and definitely gets more and more beautiful every day.

Back in 2001 when corruption was at its high in Georgia I visited Baku and thought that Tbilisi was significantly behind it. Nowadays I think otherwise (and I do not want to specify) and I am pretty confident that this city will attract a lot of tourists in the future.

What is in short the most noticeable that Tbilisi is really distinguished from other cities???

Well I would name the following:

1. Unique architecture
2. Different old town
3. Fantastic food
4. and Georgians themselves

I will be also objective and also indicate what are the negative sides of this city:

1. A lot of garbage and low culture in population for not throwing it out
2. Petty crime (though recent attack on "Vorov V Zakone" (thiefs in law) by President Saakashvili improved situation noticeably)
3. Quite a few beggars in the streets
4. Excessive consumption of alcohol at Georgian Table - Supra (though this does not mean that there are alcoholics roaming in the streets)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Location, Architecture, Food and People
  • Cons:Garbage, Petty Crime and Beggars in the streets
  • In a nutshell:Definitely worth a visit

    A wonderful page - T'blisi's is a place I'd love to visit, though I'd give the MacDonald's a miss and go looking for some good kachapuri instead. leyle

    Loved your T'bilisi page. I was just getting nostalgic for my trip there a few years ago. I'd love to go back someday. Thanks!
