Tbilisi - Eastern Europe's coolest city
Magazines all over the world are praising the emerging city for its cool and urban atmosphere.

The American fashion magazine „Wmagazine“ has published a report about Georgia's main city, calling it „the coolest emerging city you most likely never heard of“. According to the fashion magazine, Tbilisi is in the midst of a transition and is finding its beat for the first time, like Paris in the 20s, San Franciso in the 50s
or East Berlin in the 90s.

Fans of Tbilisi can also be found in Switzerland: An author of the Swiss magazine „Tele“ has recently visited Tbilisi and was surprised to find an „innovative Hipster scene reminding of the urban London“.

Among the things the Swiss author recommends are the Tbilisi Flea Market at Dry Bridge and „Café Leila“ in Shavteli street that serves vegan and vegetarian food.

The later was also visited by the legendary Icelandic musician and singer Björk when she recently visited Tbilisi. She was seen there enjoying the traditional Georgian meal lobio, kidney beans cooked in a clay pot and served with corn bread.
