Top sights in Tbilisi

The capital city of Georgia, Tbilisi is a bohemian paradise. The vibrant city is known for its surrounding mountains, its traditional Old Town, narrow streets with boutique shops, and ancient Eurasian crossroads. But what many tourists don’t know is that underneath all the eclectic architecture, and well-preserved landmarks, the city is also filled with speakeasies and hipster cafes. With landmarks like the 17th century Narikala Fortress, and many 4th-7th century cathedrals, and the modern avant-garde Bridge of Peace just a hop-skip away, the city is a perfect mix of old and new.

Narikala Fortress

One of the most visited landmarks in Tbilisi, Narikala Fortress is a must-see. Once a Persian citadel back in the 4th century, the fortress boasts breathtaking views of the city. Aside from the views inside the fortress, you can also find the Tbilisi Botanical Garden, and the Church of St. Nicolas inside. There are two ways to visit the Narikala Fortress – one is by cable car from Rike Park, which allows you to take in the beautiful panoramic views, and the other is by walking up to the entrance from Meidan, another popular landmark in the city.

The Bridge of Peace

Sitting over the Mtkvari river as a pedestrian crosswalk, the Bridge of Peace is one of the most visited landmarks in Tbilisi. Designed by Italian architect, Michele De Lucchi, the Bridge of Peace is probably one of the most avant-garde and eye-catching designs in Georgia. Over 156 meters long, the bridge has become a very convenient cross-point that connects Rike Park and the “old town.” It is also a fantastic place to take in breathtaking views of the city, whatever time of day.
