Georgia's capital city is eclectic and has a really cool vibe. It’s very picturesque so put on some comfortable shoes and prepare to walk around a lot.

 

Meteki Church of the Assumption.

Zion Cathedral.

The Bridge of Peace (built in 2010).

 

Mother of Georgia. In her left hand she holds a bowl of wine to greet those who come as friends, and in her right hand is a sword for those who come as enemies.

Narikala Fortress.

This is part of the Avlabari neighborhood. Historically it was populated by Armenians. Nowadays, it is one of the upcoming hip neighborhoods of the city, so it is being extensively gentrified.

The Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi is the main cathedral of the Georgian Orthodox Church.

Built in 2004, this Cathedral is huge.

Khachapuri is a traditional Georgian dish of cheese-filled bread. Super filling!

Khinkali is a Georgian dumpling, in this case stuffed with ground beef. Excellent!

Here’s the Tbilisi metro! It was built in the Soviet era (1966) and it feels like it. It’s got only two lines, but works fine.

It’s Ronald Reagan! Yes, President Reagan is admired here, because he liberated Georgia from the Soviet Union. Makes sense.

These domes are rooftops for the sulphur baths, of which there are plenty in this part of town.

The water in that hot tub was hot!

Great archaelogical exhibit at the Georgia National Museum.

The Dry Bridge Market sells nearly everything!

Churchkhela is a type of Georgian candy, shaped like a candle made from natural grape juice, hazel-nut, or other nuts inside it.
