Tbilisi, Georgia – Cable Car Ride to Narikala Fortress & View of Old Town Tbilisi

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.
