Funicular, Tbilisi

#1 of 7 in Transportation in Georgia
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. Our Tbilisi trip itinerary planning site makes visiting Funicular and other Tbilisi attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Raised before long cable car to local neighborhoods and always uphill. Start building a beautiful. In the cashier, buy a card for 2 gel and throws the money-2.5 gel per each leg per person. Although the segment 2: first stop of St David and the second amusement park, the cashier said pay for each. We decided not to go to the top and win at the first stop. But only the van drove as has stopped, literally, a couple of dozen meters, we don't even realize that this is the first stop and drove on. The second came out-the ultimate amusement park. No extra it's not forced, on the way back the same scheme-not left, then drive on. So the meaning of refinement in the cashier where you are going in general do not understand! Drive and buy a ticket for 2.5, if you go upstairs. Don't pay twice because two stops. You pay per visit, not for stopping-this is important, what you need to know. If you leave the temple, then go above it is necessary to pay, but if you go will not, it's worth it's like 2.5 gel. And at the expense of the trailer: rides on Rails at a sharp angle, but the seats are evenly, so there is no angle. Seating capacity: 22 persons. It is best to take first place on a course of movement, you can stand or sit up straight at the front window. Then feel the maximum effect as on a roller coaster. Well ... If you have time to do nothing specifically totally or, take a ride. If there is a more interesting ideas for visits, go there specifically to ride, think not worth it. Cable car in the old town will suffice. Yes and go a little bit longer.

  • The cable car operates from six in the morning until 3 at night but the mountain is only possible until then 23:00 can only go down. 2.5 ticket price Larry toward ($1) at the bottom station has photos and explanations of the history of about 100 years from the overlook of the city should sit on the bench with the pins in the direction (down) so enjoy the view

  • Round-trip upgrade from 19:00 to 00:00 worth 7 lari. I was at the weekend, there were quite a lot of people. Rides on the flue effect, in the middle of the meet and travel trailers

  • Nice view, good tasty food. Could give 5 stars but have to take one away because of price of the local vine. I think it is a bit expensive. I would expect this in none vine making countries. But definitely not in Georgia with best vine making traditions. Price of one glass of vine at restaurant equals price of 2 liters excellent house vine at the market. Or price of one bottle of vine at the vine shop on street.
  • Amazing experience to escalating view of the whole city of Tbilisi. I visited at night. Fantastic park for kids and adults can enjoy exclusive restaurants with the view
  • At the lower floor, an excellent local diner with atmosphere... great food: try the dumplings and the bean stew! Inexpensive beer... and don't hesitate to climb to the lounge bar for some chacha to start or to finish...
  • Adjarauli khachpuri on the 1st floor is great! Definitely a good choice for anyone trying to get their money's worth on a meal!
  • Great place , with amazing view , and tasty food ...
