The hospitable Tbilisi

The capital of Georgia, Tbilisi is the largest and best-developed city in the country. The legend goes that it was founded in V century A.D. by king Vakhtang Gorgasali. When hunting pheasants he came across thermal springs and ordered to build saunas around them. The place soon became very popular and with time, it grew to the size of a district and then a city. In VI century A.D. Tbilisi became the capital of Iberian kingdom. It is interesting to note that archeologists discover artefacts dated back to VI-III centuries B.C. when doing excavations on the territory of Tbilisi and nearby.

Tbilisi is divided into ten administrative districts: Saburtalo, Vake, Gldani, Nadzaladevi, Didube, Mtatsminda, Chugureti, Isani, Krtsanisi, and Samgori. There are many architectural monuments in Tbilisi, such as Narikala Citadel, Kashveti Church, Peace Bridge, Anchiskhati Orthodox Temple, and others. In Abanotubani quarter saunas on hot sulfurous springs can be found. This site is considered the number one tourist attraction in the city. Tbilisi is a green city indeed: there are a lot of parks, gardens, and orchards there.
