The capital of Georgia has been on our “we wish we could expand here” list for ages, and we’re super happy we finally had the chance to do it with the dreamteam of Spotters we selected. Check out Spotted by Locals Tbilisi!
Georgia (and Tbilisi) has experienced a mini boom in tourism the past few years, but it’s still comparatively undiscovered. We hope our city guide inspire you to take a trip to this very interesting country and city, and to do it “like a local”!
Our Spotter Mako puts it very well we think “Most people have no idea what Tbilisi looks like, but after their first visit they become obsessed with the idea of coming back again.”
A small sample of locals Amir, Maka, Mako & Sarah’s favourites spots in their city Tbilisi:
Mako: “There was no museum, shop or monument. As soon as we entered number 31, I became speechless. It was a very beautiful and refined entrance hall. Even now, every time I pass by that place, if the door is open I always enter just to have a glance.”
Sarah: “The name Tbilisi derives from an old Georgian word meaning “warm place.” If you’re anywhere near the baths, you can’t miss them. Your nose will lead you there, to an area of the Old Town with its beehive domes that look like something out of a science fiction thriller.”
8000 vintages Tbilisi
Maka: “Georgian wine belongs to the must-see/try things in Georgia, because it has an iconic significance. If you want to enjoy Georgian traditional wine without visiting the wine regions of Georgia, I have one good address for you in Tbilisi: the wine shop and bar ‘8000 Vintages’. The name indicates the long history of viticulture in my country.”
Amir: “When Talking about jazz, most people would argue that jazz is dying. Well most people don’t know about places like Jazz Café Singer. In café Singer, jazz music is alive and well.”
