This year, Georgia has been named one of the top vacation spots for travelers looking for a less touristy destination. There are many wonderful secrets to explore, but here’s a list of the best to get you started.

Get Lost In The Old Town

Old Town Tbilisi is filled with art galleries, local bars, and guesthouses. You can spend an entire afternoon wandering through the winding alleys of Oldtown. If you are a fan of architecture, keep an eye out for the Leaning Clock Tower.

Mtatsminda Park

In addition to offering a little fairground and a collection of cute restaurants and cafes, Mtatsminda Park offers a stunning view of the city below. Luckily, you can get the bus up to the top.

Take a Sulphur Bath

The sulphur baths are open 24/7 and are located in the Abanotubani district of the old town. They are a great place to warm up, relax, and enjoy something a little different to your typical Western spa.

The Holy Trinity of Cathedral

The Holy Trinity of Cathedral of Tbilisi is locally referred to as “Sameba.” It is an impressive building and is one of the tallest Orthodox buildings in the world.

Eat Candy

The local candy in Tbilisi is very special. You can buy candy from street corners or in big shops – they are hard to miss. The two types to look out for are Churchkhela and Taklpi. These are authentic, handmade Georgian candies.
