Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi, Tbilisi

4.7
Must see · Historic Walking Area · Tourist Spot
At the heart of the capital, Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi boasts an eclectic mix of new and ancient buildings in a rainbow of colors, set against the looming bulk of Narikala Fortress. Devastated by an invading army charging north from Persia in 1795, much of the area was painstakingly rebuilt and restored in the mid-19th century while the country was under Russian rule (although many buildings and churches dating from the 5th century still exist here). Notice the carved wooden balconies on large houses that hang over the pavement as you stroll the narrow streets and alleyways in search of an ancient church or two. Other places of interest include the area's popular sulfur baths. Plan your Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi visit and explore what else you can see and do in Tbilisi using our Tbilisi trip planner.
