  Tbilisi is an archaic spelling – Tiflis; it is the capital city of the country of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Mtkvari River. Tbilisi lies in the center of eastern Georgia, in the foothills of the Trialeti mountain range. According to Georgian legends, it was founded in the 5th century by King Vakhtang Gorgasali. You will see OLD Tbilisi with its specific style and beautiful buildings, old churches, you will see Freedom Square, Rustaveli Ave and Sameba Church which is the third tallest Eastern Orthodox cathedral in the world. Sameba is a synthesis of traditional styles dominating Georgian church architecture. 

  Tbilisi has a humid subtropical climate  with considerable continental and semi-arid influences. The city experiences hot, humid summers and moderately cold winters. Like other regions of Georgia, Tbilisi receives significant rainfall throughout the year.

  The architecture in the city is a mixture of local (Georgian) and Byzantine, Neoclassical, Art Nouveau, Beaux-Arts, Middle Eastern, and Soviet modern styles. Very few buildings survived the destruction of the city in 1795, so most historical buildings in Tbilisi date to the Russian Imperial period (1801–1917). The oldest parts of the city (Kala, Abanotubani, Avlabari) were largely rebuilt on their medieval street plans, and some old houses were even rebuilt on much older foundations.

  Georgia’s growing popularity as an international tourist destination has put Tbilisi on the global travel map. With the country hosting more than 9 million international visitors in the past years the capital saw major investments in the hospitality industry. It now is the leading tourist destination in the region, offering exquisite cityscapes, Art Decor, Russian, Eastern and Soviet architecture, national museums and galleries, cultural attractions, festivals, historical landmarks and exceptional, traditional Georgian cuisine with a wide range of international restaurants.
