Named after the famous Georgian writer, this street has all the shopping that your heart desire as well as casinos and restaurants. Plenty of street musicians everywhere and the entire street was lit up for Christmas & New Years celebrations. All of us had an amazing time roaming the alleyways that runs around the entire gamut of this street. You will find incredible artists displaying their art which you can buy at a bargain price.

Named after a famous medieval Georgian poet “Shota Rustaveli”, it is a charming culturally rich street, and you have to spend some time just walking around the avenue.
The street starts at Freedom/Liberty Square, running along for about 1.5 KM, and along its sides, you will find some of the most important and magnificent buildings of Tbilisi, such as the "Parliament of Georgia", the "Kashveti St. George Church", the "Rustaveli Theater", the "Georgian National Museum", the "Tbilisi Opera House", as well as a lot of hotels, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops…etc. such a lovely experience.

We walked down Rustaveli on a sunny afternoon beginning at Liberty Square. Generally, the buildings along the street are impressive and well cared for. However, the pedestrian underpasses were in terrible condition. Some were being repaired during my visit. There is a new shopping centre on the left side not far from Liberty Square and further on is the Parliament Building. On the right side of the street, there are several museums, St George’s Church, Rustaveli Theatre and the Opera/Ballet Theatre. There are several very good hotels and restaurants on Rustaveli. The street was closed at various times as they were filming the next instalment of Fast and Furious.

This is certainly Tbilisi's most beautiful and affluent Avenue! This central avenue was formerly known as "Golovin Street" and was renamed after the medieval Georgian acclaimed poet "Shota Rustaveli'. It starts at "Freedom Square" and runs for about 1,5km up to Kostava Street. Along its shaded sides, some of the most important and magnificent buildings of Tbilisi, as the "Parliament of Georgia", the "Kashveti St. George Church", the "Rustaveli Theater", the "Georgian National Museum", the "Tbilisi Opera House", as well as hotels, restaurants, cafés, shops and offices. Just unmissable at any visit to Tbilisi! Enjoy!

Rustaveli Avenue is one of the oldest part and the main boulevard of the city, the cultural epicenter of Tbilisi. Its full of heritage buildings, museums and old world charm. Famous 5 star hotels are all located along Rustaveli avenue. The best selection of attractions, trendy cafes, upscale restaurants and favorite shopping places make Rustaveli avenue and Mtatsminda neighborhood the most desired area for locals and tourists.

Rustaveli Avenue is the main thoroughfare of Central Tbilisi and was originally known as Golovin Street. The prestigious avenue was named after Georgian poet Shota Rustavelli. Rustaveli Avenue has a wide range of sights and attractions including the Parliament of Georgia, Georgian National Opera Theatre, 9th of April Park amongst many others. We were staying to the north of Rustaveli Avenue so we had time to visit several times and also we were able to walk its entire length on one occasion. Rustaveli Avenue has an abundance of attractions within a relatively small area and is worth spending a few days to explore the district.

I highly recommend to visit Tbilisi, Georgia. The most popular location is Rustavelli Avenue. Many shops and cultural points are there. At the end of the Avenue, the Liberty Square is very nice and highly recommended.. You can find nice places for dining, having coffee and tea and deserts.

After Liberty Square you can explore tge road towards Sharden the Old City.

Lovely Avenue to go for a stroll no matter what time of day... here is always something to see and to explore.
Just all bar and restaurant prices are overpriced!
In my opinion - nice to walk along.... but just a lot of tourist traps.
Be careful which restaurant you chose!

This was my 2nd visit. A lot of shops, but mostly the same things for sale. More than a few restaurants . During the day several churches and statues to see. I didn’t have time but it looks like a nice place just to walk around and enjoy the sights.
