Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi, Tbilisi
(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
At the heart of the capital, Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi boasts an eclectic mix of new and ancient buildings in a rainbow of colors, set against the looming bulk of Narikala Fortress. Devastated by an invading army charging north from Persia in 1795, much of the area was painstakingly rebuilt and restored in the mid-19th century while the country was under Russian rule (although many buildings and churches dating from the 5th century still exist here). Notice the carved wooden balconies on large houses that hang over the pavement as you stroll the narrow streets and alleyways in search of an ancient church or two. Other places of interest include the area's popular sulfur baths.

  • Walking in Tbilisi is a pleasure! And one has only to turn away from the noisy streets, as gaze opens a whole other world. All of these antique Georgian patios, razveshannoe underwear and children gonjajushhie ball, dip you in a completely different era. Among the houses hidden many churches and chapels and houses, doors and balconies, not similar to each other, as if every house is a unique person, with its history and character. There I want to come back again and again!

  • The narrow streets of curves on which the walk interesting, but to eat better find another place. Most institutions are geared towards tourists and tarnished the honour of Georgian hospitality: small portions and not always tasty.

  • Always a lot of people, a lot of different establishments, cafes, restaurants, beautiful architecture and pleasant atmosphere!
