Narikala Fortress, Tbilisi
(4.4/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
The ruined Narikala Fortress looms over the city, forming a dramatic skyline which serves as a reminder of the area's turbulent history throughout the centuries. Damaged and unrepaired since an earthquake in 1827, the fortress has played host to Persians, Mongols, and Arab emirs, and was founded in the 4th century as a Persian citadel. There are no guided tours here, but a tourist walk runs around the fortress and down into the old town to the botanical gardens. It's a steep climb even inside the fortress, so wear comfortable shoes. Entry is free.
