Named for a medieval Georgian poet, Rustaveli Avenue throbs with the life of the city and offers insight into the interaction of the old and new in Georgia. The avenue begins at Freedom Square, where government and cultural buildings line the street interspersed with shops and eateries. Among the imposing facades are the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre, the Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia, and the former parliament building of Georgia. Walk the avenue to find small, independent stores shoulder-to-shoulder with big name, international brands. The avenue is home to a wide range of eateries, from the inexpensive cafe to fine dining establishments. A visit to Rustaveli Avenue represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tbilisi itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Long, broad, and very busy street in the center of Tbilisi. Beautiful and charming buildings, (not always in the best condition). Many restaurants and shops, as well as some beggar. It is not possible to walk across the street due to traffic, but you have to use the system with time-culverts.
