Tbilisi is a fairly safe place to visit.  Having said this, there are certain precautions that should be taken in order to ensure a smooth trip through Georgia.  Like always, common sense is the most important tool to be used in staying safe.

            People planning a trip to the Republic of Georgia should pay close attention to the political situation of this country.  Although in recent years the situation has been fairly safe for visitors, there are two separatist regions that are not controlled by the government, which are not recommended for tourists to visit.  Be aware of the political situation! 

            Demonstrations, protests and mass gatherings may occur in major public areas.  Avoid these situations as they can be dangerous.

            Street crime, burglary and petty theft do occur in Tbilisi, but most of these situations can be avoided by using a few simple rules. Avoid carrying around large amounts of money or looking extremely flashy.  Drawing un-needed attention is never a good idea.  Lock all doors and windows when leaving valuables behind in a car or hotel room.

            Pickpockets are not a major problem in Tbilisi, but they have been known to hit unsuspecting tourists in certain areas.  Be aware that the prime spots for pickpockets are crowded, public areas. 

            Although not many countries have foreign embassies in Georgia, the certain ones that do are located in Tbilisi.   For a complete list, including contact and location information, check out this Foreign Embassies List.
