Tbilisi Funicular, Tbilisi

Must see · Lookout · Tramway
Built as an attraction and to enable people to take in the wide vista atop the Mtatsminda plateau, Tbilisi 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 Tbilisi Funicular and other Tbilisi attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Cheap, cool funicular that takes you up to the park with a lot of attractions. We went early in the AM before the park opened and it was still worth it for the view and experience.  more »
  • Few places like this one - you need a hilly city to have such a funicular, that will take you back to 19th century and its technological marvels :) And you children will love it  more »
  • The views sre amazing Go on the big wheel for even higher views
  • Nice place. A bit waiting for the cabin to climb. But there is a fantastic view from above. Very nice park around
  • It's a perfectly good funicular. The staff are quietly friendly. BUT, my complaint is that one has to buy a plastic card for the ticket. It's non refundable. It's only 2 lari for the card, but that's not the point. It should be taken back and reused. C'mon people, every little bit counts.
  • Well maintained and Scienic
  • A great experience, Tbilisi looks so beautiful from above! I would recommend to go there at night!
