Have you ever seen any Soviet movie from 70-80'? If not I can recommend to watch "S legkim parom" serial. The first part is about a group of friends visited Russian banya in the fall of the year, washed themselves, had a lot of vodka/brandy shots and finally got lost. The other series parts are about waking up in another... More

This place was in my 'todo in Tbilisi'-list. It's nice, little bit soviet-service, but nice. - Many halls to choose from. The interrior is fabulous. Feels like you're part of some arabian fairy-tale. - Of course water smells disgusting. But in 10-15 minutes you'll get used to it. - Water can feel too hot. But it's possible to dilute it... More

If you’re not the most body confident person or really just don’t fancy getting your kit off in front of strangers, then this might be the bath house for you since it only has private rooms. These baths are located under the domes in the square, where you’ll descend into a subterranean underworld with a blue hue. Most of the... More

One of the most attractive places in Tbilisi for visitors, where Tbilisi started. Balconies, narrow streets, baths houses, bakeries. Amazing!!!

Please note that they're not all the same baths--this area is the traditional sulphur bath area, but there are multiple bathhouses operating in the neighborhood. I chose oberliani, because it was listed as one of the more beautiful baths and was not as expensive as royal. However, it was being repaired at the time. My advice: do your research first,... More

Best place in Tbilisi for relaxation. Traditional sulfur base for a centuries gives a wonderful attraction for tourists and local citizens well. Would strongly recommend to every tourist to visit Abanotubani sulfur base at least once during their stay in Tbilisi....

if you like sulphuric waters you must go and visit (not necessarily have a bath) these old baths houses. Some are renewed and quite clean. For a very cheap price (50 lari) one can get full spa treatment.

This is a unique experience, get up-close with a Georgian masseuse. Definitely took me back at how open folk are. The bath was hot and steamy, the massage was great. Cheap and cheerful.

I realize I don't really enjoy bathhouses where I don't know the procedure. I've gone to Hammam in Turkey, I lived in Japan and used the public baths on a regular basis, so I don't mind being naked around strangers, but... I just couldn't find enough information about what to expect, or what was expected of me, so we only... More

On a good side, you would be very clean once you get out of there ;) On a bad side: - Had to wait for almost 40 minutes, although we did the booking in advance - Sauna is not warm enough - you can sit there for 15 minutes easily w/o sweating - Massage for males is rather tough even... More
