Visited number five while in tblisi and found it to be the best value. The total cost including towel hire and entrance was 5 laris or around $2.5. Other places wanted 25-50 laris. Then encourage you to bath naked though it isn't mandatory. Water was super hot - they said 45c though I think its heading toward 48c so you... More

The Abanotubanu (bath quarter) sulfur baths complex is located in a very central place, at the eastern embankment of the Mtkvari River at the foot of the Narikala fortress. This is an important historic part of the city - the place, where, according to a legend, the King of Iberia, Vakhtang Gorgasali’s falcon fell during royal hunting, leading to discovery... More

If the pretty bad hygiene doesn't bother you this is a wonderful experience. The former Soviet "Banya-culture" is easy to acces here for almost no money at all. You could either relax with the locals for about 2 lari (1 euro) or you could rent a private pool and grab some cold beers with you for about 15 euro, as... More

The baths aren't so special. Sulphur stinks and you kind of get the feeling that they want to get rid of you but the place is absolutely fantastic. Newly refurbished and opened for public with bars, restaurants and a walk with a waterfall. There you can take some of the most iconic photos ever. Also I've noticed a lot of... More

Not only is this park very picturesque, but the surrounding area itself is exciting. Only a block or two away, Shardanis Street is packed with bars and clubs, with a mixture between outdoor cover bands and typical club music. It's a great place to spend a weekend evening. Also near the park is the local turkish bath house. The people... More

Really beautiful area with the bath's domes, the fortress, mosque and churches at the back and good maintained houses around. I think this is the best preserved part of the old town.

definitely worth seeing...a bit overrun by tourists in the evening but besides very interesting architecture (mix of art nouveau, mosque and typical wooden balconies), well-renovated
