  • The beginning of the Avenue, which becomes a pedestrian during holidays. Metro station. Tbilisi, meeting place and for us the starting point. Here we descended from the Mctaminda, where our hotel, it started getting familiar with the long-awaited city. Recite the poem somehow no one recited, do not trust enthusiastic reviews.

  • The statue of the national hero Rustavelli is not much special. Just a statue for the man to which a beautiful boulevard and the national airport is named. But the eponymous boulevard is different. With the many neo-classical and Art Nouveau buildings and terraces does this think of the Parisian boulevards. If you have a few days in Tbilisi are undoubtedly here you come back a few times. Just make sure you don't get off the metro at the Freedom monument but one stop, at Rustavelli Avenue.

Where to stay in Tbilisi

Strung out alongside the Mtkvari River, Tbilisi's historical core and bustling city center offers an array of accommodation options. Choose the fortress hill, the more northern residential districts, or a main street in the center of the action. Large international chain hotels offer luxury options, complete with fine dining, air conditioning, and more. However, you can also choose from more economical, mid-level options located around Rustaveli Avenue and Tbilisi's old town. For the lowest cost, consider one of the ubiquitous hostels.
