Getting slightly lost in Tbilisi, Georgia

I spent my first day in Tbilisi exploring the left bank of the Mtkvari river, which according to the guidebooks (Lonely Planet and Bradt) had nothing to see. Which I would disagree with, as I thoroughly enjoyed my day exploring, in a slightly lost fashion, the area. Even more perhaps than my subsequent day in the Old Town seeing the better known sights.DSC06107 DSC06096 DSC06114

I often find getting slightly lost one of the best ways of exploring a new city. I had a map and a general idea of where I wanted to go, but was quite happy just to wander the streets and see what found. Which in this case was a lot of rather evocatively derelict, or at least somewhat knackered, buildings.DSC05975 DSC05990 DSC05984 DSC06091 DSC06016 DSC05989Plus a couple of nice churches.DSC06183 Alexander Nevel Church DSC06127 St. Peter & Paul ChurchA street art covered building by St. Peter & Paul Church.DSC06148 DSC06135Georgian style road works at the southern end of Agmashenebeli Ave.DSC06262 DSC06094 End of Agmashenebeli Ave being dug upAnd impressive buildings along much of the rest of Agmashenebeli Ave, including the House of Culture of Railwaymen and it’s neighbouring park and the Theatre and Cinema Museum.DSC06223 DSC06200DSC06224DSC06211DSC06231DSC06238DSC06245DSC06257DSC06265
