Tbilisi - the Capital of Georgia

The Georgian capital straddles the banks of the Mtkvari River. Founded in the 5th century by King Vakhtang I Gorgasali, it contains many bath houses fed by the area’s natural hot springs and from it you’ll have no problem spotting the Narikala Fortress which can be seen from most parts of the Old Town. The modern city is centred on Freedom Square, from where you can walk along Rustaveli Avenue where many of the best shops and restaurants are located. For a great view over the city, take the funicular to Mtatsminda amusement park.
