Dry Bridge – Open museum

In Tbilisi you can find many bridges, but Dry Bridge is a special one. It became popular in the ’90s. That’s the period when the Soviet Union died, but some poor people didn’t want to die and that’s why they decided to bring their own things from house, put them on the wide sidewalks above the bridge and sell them off cheaply.   

Today the Dry Bridge is the main touristic destination of Tbilisi. The reason is its wide choice. Here you can find everything you are searching for. I say everything and I’m not exaggerating: photo cameras, dishes, accessories, soviet orders, decorations and medals, DVDs, carpets, board games, postcards, books, musical plates and many other useful or useless things…

Some people call it an open museum, because nowadays some of those things are very rare and antique, and some of those things are part of collections of old collectors.

PS. I can give you some advice: if you want to buy something at the Dry Bridge Market, go there with a local. He/she will help you to have your desirable things at a good price.
