Tbilisi's Brutalist Reality

1. Tbilisi's Brutalist Reality

Meet your guide either at your hotel or a central location that is convenient for you and embark on your walking tour. Head to the Ministry of Roads Building, which is a unique monument of Brutalist architecture. Then visit Georgian Stonehenge, a monumental building on the shores of the Tbilisi Sea. The Tbilisi twin towers were built in the last century. What is their uniqueness? They are connected by bridges to each other so of course, take a walk along with them at a height of 70 meters above the ground. Then visit the so-called suicide bridge. The bridge is located above the river Vera and City Hall tries to decorate it but the story does not change. Next, explore the Museum of Archeology, which is now an abandoned building.

From Tbilisi: Georgian Highlights in One Day Private Tour

3. From Tbilisi: Georgian Highlights in One Day Private Tour

Your guide will pick you up in the morning in a comfortable car and head first to the Tbilisi sea. You might be surprised by the existence of a sea in the Georgian capital, but in fact, the Tbilisi sea is the unofficial name of the reservoir created in 1952 to serve the city with water. The Tbilisi reservoir is located at a height of more than 500m above sea level and it is a pleasure to spend time here during the summer heat. Here, you’ll also visit a monument that amazes with its size. Known as the Georgian Stonehenge, the monument is officially titled the Chronicle of Georgia and was created by the Georgian-Russian painter, sculptor, and architect Zurab Tsereteli. The memorial was erected in order to celebrate 3,000 years of Georgian sovereignty and 2,000 years of Christianity in Georgia. The next stop will be the Jvari Monastery, the 6th-century Georgian Orthodox monastery built on a hill opposite Mtskheta at the confluence of the Aragvi and Mtkvari rivers. Jvari Monastery is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Continue to the Shida Kartli region where you’ll visit Uplistsikhe, an ancient cave town and one of the oldest urban settlements in Georgia. Uplistsikhe — literally “Fortress of God" — is an ancient town that played a significant role in Georgian history over a period of approximately 3,000 years. Archaeological excavations have revealed extraordinary artifacts dating from the late Bronze Age all the way up to the late Middle Ages. The next stop will be at Borjomi Central Park, home to the most remarkable virtues of Borjomi with its striking nature and unique mineral waters.

What people are saying about The Chronicle of Georgia

The tour was about five hours long and was half driving, half walking. We were driven from one sight to the next and got out each time, got an explanation and had enough time to take pictures and explore. Our favorite sight was the “stonehenge” on top of a hill. It is an incredibly photogenic sight, and hardly any people are there. Super cool! The tour really gives you a good look at the real life in Tbilisi, away from the tourist hot spots. Very educational and interesting for people who are interested in soviet architecture and getting off the besten path. Our guides were Alex and Alexiv, both very nice guys who were polite, patient and spoke english very well.

Alex and Alexo picked us up from our hotel and took us to many fascinating 'off the beaten track' places. They were very knowledgeable and we learned plenty during the tour.
