Tbilisi is a city of contrasts, where both modern structures and old architecture co-exist. The capital of Georgia has undergone many invasions and been burnt and restored a couple of times, but despite that it still displays turbulent history and rich culture. And besides popular tourists destinations, Tbilisi hides unique gems in the backstreets. Here are the best attractions you can visit on your next trip to the capital.
