Tbilisi is the delightful capital of Georgia, which offers visitors a rich history, easy to explore by foot. As an architecture fan I loved the variety from neo-classical to ultra modern civic buildings, often only a few streets away from each other. Some more detailed posts will follow but here’s a taster of what to expect…A stunning location on the Mtkvari River, surrounded by hills, offering numerous vantage points from which to enjoy the view. The citadel was my favourite, looking down from above the Old Town. A surprising amount of high quality modern architecture, including the mushroom covered Justice House, a half completed concert hall, and the Peace Bridge. A delightfully maze like Old Town, including Sulphur Baths. A smattering of funky street art. Religious buildings everywhere, mainly Georgian orthodox churches, but also Catholic churches, a synagogue and a mosque. The metro system is very Soviet in design, deep judging by the length of the escalators, and seemingly super efficient, having had to wait less than 30 seconds for a train each time I used it. There is also a handy funicular railway, providing yet more vantage points over the city. And a cable car from the river up to the citadel and Mother Georgia statue.The highlight of the National Museum was the powerful top floor on the near seventy year Soviet Occupation of Georgia.And a huge number of grand civic buildings, including the Moorish style Opera House, Soviet Science Centre, and the former Parliament lit up at night.
