Funicular, Tbilisi

#1 of 6 in Transportation in Georgia
Tramway Lookout
Built as an attraction and to enable people to take in the wide vista atop the Mtatsminda plateau, Funicular opened in 1905. This steep railway climbs above the city, allowing 360-degree views through the all-glass exterior. You'll appreciate the new carriages installed in 2012 that replaced older, more rickety cars. At the top, take in a view of the city, visit the restaurant complex, and head up to the amusement park that dominates the plateau for fun and adventure. Plan your visit to Funicular and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tbilisi itinerary builder.

  • Beautiful place, there is a fancy restaurant on top of the mountain and the park is great place to walk around friends, family, or children.
  • Ordered an expensive dish, they gave me the wrong one, I realized after taking a single bite that it was horrendous, and they refused to replace it.
  • great view from restaurant, but very high prices for drinks and food
  • Loved the funicular ride.. must visit during the summer.. tried the giant wheel at the park, spectacular view of the city😍
  • Great place for romantic dinner, perfect view on the city, good wine, tasty food, prices are in the middle.

Where to stay in Tbilisi

Strung out alongside the Mtkvari River, Tbilisi's historical core and bustling city center offers an array of accommodation options. Choose the fortress hill, the more northern residential districts, or a main street in the center of the action. Large international chain hotels offer luxury options, complete with fine dining, air conditioning, and more. However, you can also choose from more economical, mid-level options located around Rustaveli Avenue and Tbilisi's old town. For the lowest cost, consider one of the ubiquitous hostels.
