Tbilisi city tour
Tbilissi city built on the sulfur springs from ancient times attracted travelers
from all over the world. It is safeguarded by mountains chain from all sides
and provided shelter to the caravans trading both on East and West
sides of the continent. The city was always under influence of European and
Asian cultures, that finally melted into a fusion called Tbilisi.
The city itself accommodates numerous
nationalities; over the centuries of coexistence interaction of different
mentalities shaped unique sub-culture of Tbilissians which meant living in
so called Italian yards which wide wood curved balconies and inner
courtyards. it was in fashion to have a little fountain in the middle but
not all could afford this luxury. Tbilissians created their slang, humor and
the way of living and even music.
Atmosphere of old Tbilisi still can be
felt during your trip through the streets of the old city. Italian yards are
gradually demolished but some still stand as a remembrance of those years so
much loved by Tbilissians.
