Abanotubani is the natural mineral baths... it is not a luxurious bath if that what you expect, however, the water is warm and you can smell sulfur out of it! Great experience for sure. We booked the private bath, it was for 50 lari for one hour. you get an entire bath with a changing room. Highly recommended to try.... More

For some, like me, who are really not used to public baths, the experience was a bit awkward. Although it was so relaxing and soothing. Highly recommendable on your last day in Tbilisi - after the long walks, or even running - this will freshen you up again. VIP = GEL 150 Private baths range from GEL 40 to 80... More

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

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
