With its dramatic valley setting, picturesque Old Town, eclectic architecture and superb eating and drinking opportunities, Tbilisi is the vibrant, beating heart of Georgia and home to more than one in three of its citizens. Add to that the pull of the city’s hipster culture, its techno scene and general air of cool, and Tbilisi is confidently sealing its reputation as the South Caucasus’ most cosmopolitan city.
Tbilisi is the capital and the largest city of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Kura River with a population of approximately 1.5 million people. Because of its location on the crossroads between Europe and Asia, and its proximity to the lucrative Silk Road, throughout history Tbilisi was a point of contention among various global powers.
The city’s location to this day ensures its position as an important transit route for energy and trade projects. Tbilisi’s cobblestoned old town reflects a long, complicated history, with periods under Persian and Russian rule. Its diverse architecture encompasses Eastern Orthodox churches, ornate art nouveau buildings and Soviet Modernist structures. Looming over it all are Narikala, a reconstructed 4th-century fortress, and Kartlis Deda, an iconic statue of the “Mother of Georgia.”
Tbilisi is known for its mild winters, with daytime temperatures very rarely dropping below 0 degrees Celsius. Snow is not as common as it was even a decade ago, most years, Tbilisi only has one or two snowy days. Many tourists before visiting Tbilisi might think, when it does snow in Tbilisi?
Well, it usually falls overnight. The snow melts very quickly and is often followed by rain. This is why it’s an extremely rare sight to see the city’s rooftops or streets covered with a white blanket of fluffy snow.
