Tbilisi Info

Tbilisi (Georgian: ???????) is the capital city of the country of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Mtkvari river. The city covers an area of 726 kmĀ² (280.3 square miles) and has a population of approximately 1,345,000.


Tbilisi lies in the centre of eastern Georgia, in the foothills of the Trialeti mountain range. According to Georgian legends, it was founded in the 5th century by King Vakhtang Gorgasali who, while hunting, shot a pheasant which fell into a warm spring and was either boiled or healed. Either way, the king was inspired to found a city on the site, and the name of the city derives from the Georgian word tbili meaning "warm". Although the city has been destroyed and rebuilt some 29 times, the layout of the Old Town is largely intact with narrow alleys and big crooked houses built around courtyards.
