Funicular, Tbilisi

(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The funicular connects the city with the hill where the Matsminda park, fun park with restaurants and a good walk with family or couple. There is the Dinosaur Park, Ferris wheels and very good restaurants. Recommended.

  • Maybe not the best visiting month for an amusement park but it was open (& cold). The restaurant was a pleasant surprise with good food and Nice staff

  • At the top of the funicular is a good restaurant and Super views over the city, especially in the evening when the light of lights! Can get off at stopover and visit the Church. If the weather is good then can descend on foot already. Shardeni main street, for a fun chat with friends way took 30-35 minutes. I wish the rest!
