This structure has been standing almost since the foundation of Tbilisi. Residents call the fortress “the heart and soul” of the city. At different times Arabs (VII-VIII centuries) and Mongols (XI-XII centuries) took part in its construction. For many centuries the construction was an important fortified point on the Great Silk Road. In 1827 the citadel was partially destroyed by an earthquake. Now Narikala Fortress has not been fully restored, but its walls and towers are silent witnesses of the great history of this land.

Ananuri Fortress Complex

11974 reviews
The fortress is located 64 km from Tbilisi on the Georgian Military Road. The fortress played an important role in numerous wars between feudal lords in the Middle Ages due to its convenient location. Ananuri is well preserved – not only the walls and towers, but even the ceilings and internal buildings are intact. Almost all the tourist routes in the country pass through the citadel, so it is almost impossible to miss it.

Jvari Monastery

8656 reviews
A working monastery overlooking the ancient city of Mtskheta.

Like many other religious buildings, Javri is erected on an elevation in the rock, as in ancient times it was believed that a person had to work hard to get to the “dwelling place of the Lord”.

Swan House at Atlanta History Center

Structures on the territory of Svaneti, on the southern side of the Caucasus Mountains.

Dancing Fountains

149 reviews
Singing fountains in the centre of Batumi, one of the city’s brightest attractions, attracting many tourists. During the laser show the spectators will see not only fanciful shimmers of light beams, but also a brief history of the city and country told in colours and sounds. The fountains were built relatively recently – in 2009, but have already become one of the main attractions of Batumi.

The main street of Tbilisi, its “face” and facade. Ministries, official residences, state buildings are located here, so the avenue is the centre of political life in Georgia. Also on Rustaveli Avenue there are many expensive boutiques, restaurants, hotels and nice cafes where you can drink a cup of excellent Georgian coffee.

Bridge of Peace

13570 reviews
A modern structure connecting the banks of the Kura River in Tbilisi. It symbolises a bridge from the past to the future, as it connects the old and new parts of the city.
