Cable Car Ride
This day I learned that the view of Tbilisi from Narikala Fortress is referred to as Old Town Tbilisi.
Dachi and I rode a cable car up to the fortress.
View of Old Town Tbilisi
When you exit the cable car, you don’t enter the fortress – you enter an area just to the right of it. Here you have lots of locals selling souvenirs, a fabulous view of Old Town Tbilisi and further down the walkway is the twenty meter aluminum statue of Mother Georgia – Kartlis Deda.
This view is looking towards Freedom Square.
Peace Bridge & Kura River
The above photo shows a closer look at Peace Bridge, Kura River, the glass and steel tubular music hall and the domed Presidential Administrative Building and home of Georgia’s newly elected President – Salome Zurabishvili.

Dachi’s panoramic picture he took with his phone while we were sitting higher up on the fortress.
Behind the fortress is the Botanical Gardens – once the property of the royal family.
