Happy Friday everybody! So I’ve been holding on to this post for a few weeks now. Last month, while I was visiting Turkey, I decided to take a weekend trip to Tbilisi, the capital Georgia. I was only going for two full days so I wanted to make the most out of my time, which I did.
In Tbilisi, I met up with a couple close friends that came in from Baku, Azerbaijan. It was great catching up with them, plus they were lifesavers when it came to communication! Them knowing Russian (the second most spoken language) was a huge bonus. Without them I’d be totally lost as only a very small percentage of the population spoke English.
Tbilisi, with a population of roughly 1.5 million is by far the largest city in Georgia. Politically, culturally, economically and socially, this is the heart of the country and the place to which Georgians gravitate for action and excitement.
Founded in the 5th century, Tbilisi has been home to people of diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. Its varied history is reflected in its architecture, which is a mix of medieval, classical, and Soviet structures.
I definitely plan on going back to Georgia as a couple days weren’t enough. Feel free to check out the rest of my photos and let me know what you think? By the way, where is your next weekend getaway?
