I love how the entire Old Tbilisi looks like, so old but still refreshing to see how history made itself. I think it is a place where I can just walk but never gets tired or sit down in an old coffee shop in the corner along the European park and just see how beautiful it is. :)

this is a place where one street is fully refurbished while buildings at the other nearly fall apart. modern design can be found opposite to centuries old palaces. very safe and accessible - good location for a break between hiking in the mountains of Georgia

We enjoyed walking on streets of old Tbilisi with ancient pieces of architecture and newly built ones imitating old buildings. To us, it's one of "have to see" places in Tbilisi.
