Tbilisi is the capital and largest city in the country of Georgia, located on the banks of the Mtkvari river in the east-central part of the country.

Despite many changes over its long history, the layout of Tbilisi’s Old Town is largely intact, with narrow alleys and big crooked houses built around courtyards.

Nearby Mtskheta (15 miles [24 km] away) is an ancient town of great significance to the Georgian nation as capital of the eastern Georgian kingdom of Iberia from the 3rd century BC to the 5th century AD.

During that time, Mtskheta adopted Christianity, and it has remained ever since the headquarters of the Georgian Orthodox Church.  It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Historic Landmarks
Tbilisi has a distinctive Old City, with traditional balconies, ancient churches, winding streets, and charming shops. It is home to eclectic sights, from the abandoned streetcar near Erekle Street to the art galleries of Chardini Street to the stunning modern art lining Sioni Street. Sub-neighborhoods include Sololaki, with its elegant restaurants and art nouveau architecture,

This traditional part of town is also home to churches and mosques, as well as interesting sulfur baths. Two neighborhoods to visit are Betelmi, housing two of the city's oldest churches and the stunning vistas of the Narikala Fortress, and Mtsasminda, just up the mountain from Rustaveli Avenues, a more sedate, "livable" district filled with charming old houses.
Churches
Svetitskhoveli. The Svetitskhoveli complex in the center of the town includes the 11th century cathedral, the palace and gates of the Katolikos Melchizedek from the same period, and the 18th-century gates of Irkali II. The cathedral is domed and cruciform in plan. The facades are ornamented with decorative arcading which unites the separate components of the structure. Along with nearby Jvari, it is considered is one of the most sacred places in Georgia.

Jvari Monastery. Opposite Svetitskhoveli on the top of the hill on the left bank of the Aragvi river is the Mtskhetis Jvari. This is considered the most sacred place in Georgia, where a cross was erected by St Nino to replace heathen idols. The complex contains several buildings from different periods. The cruciform church, with porticos to north and south, dates from the mid-6th century. The view from the hillside setting is amazing.
