If you visit one place in Georgia and one place alone, make it the capital city Tbilisi. Spread across both banks of the Mtkvari River, this city boasts a striking mountain backdrop. With a history as a hub along the ancient Silk Road, it offers a diverse array of architecture and thermal baths, which visiting merchants once bathed in before entering the city. Be sure to explore the Old Town, overlooked by the Narikala Fortress, as well as the Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi. Known locally as Sameba, this cathedral is at its most beautiful at night, when it’s lit up and appears bright gold.
