“Old street with Theatre , Hotels and Galleries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Old street with Theatre , Hotels and Galleries . It is not as popular lately because of excessive traffic and full of tourists and gipsy kids asking for Money. But it is what every city has and Tbilisi has it as well. I still love this avenue because it has history written all over it.

“Great for a stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

See Tbilisi life go by. Interesting mix of architecture and look out for the small metal sculptures along the way, which are mounted on small plinths on the pavement.

Make sure to use underpasses to cross from one side of street to the other, as traffic is constant and drivers don't seem to believe in giving any room to pedestrians. The underpasses also house small shops - just like Moscow.

“Along Rustaveli Avenue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

A walk along the tree lined, at least, in some parts, boulevard was a lovely way to absorb the local flavor of Tbilisi. There were not that many nice cafes or shopping opportunities along the way though. But some of the grand buildings built in the bygone European style definitely lend a touch of Europe to this city that stands at the cross roads of Eurasia. We started from the Freedom Square, rendering a bustle of action with bus stops and walled-off restoration sites choking the road, and walked past the Parliament building on to Kashveti Church and School No. 1, and beyond. Had some yummy pastries at a small cafe called ‘Chocolate’. It was a lovely way to explore Tbilisi on that warm summer afternoon.

“The place to people watch in Tblisi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

All kinds of people travel on Rustaveli Ave. everyday. It is home to museums, churches, theaters, hotels, government buildings, and some of the worst drivers I have ever seen. Donor attempt to cross the street. There are no traffic lights and pedestrians become victims very quickly. If you need to cross Rustaveli, use the underground tunnels spaced frequently along the streets.
