The Architecture in Tbilisi, Georgia, Is Worth the Trip Alone- VOGUE
24 January, 2017
Georgian capital has found its place in VOGUE magazine once again. This time the famous publication sets light on the city's varied architecture.

"Over the past few years, Tbilisi, Georgia, has become a red-hot travel destination. The far-flung city boasts a bevy of ancient activities, like its tried-and-true sulfur baths and the centuries-old tradition of drinking kvevri-fermented wine. But it’s not all Old World in Tbilisi: The city’s modern attractions include the techno club Bassiani—located in the maws of a
drained swimming pool—while tourists and locals swear by dinner at the raved-about hotel, Rooms" - VOGUE reports.

"Indicative of the Caucasus country’s ongoing metamorphosis is its sharply contrasting styles of architecture. The old city of Tbilisi, Abanotubani, is still brick-laden and sulfur scented, while vestiges of its era as a former republic of the Soviet Union include the post-constructivist 18-story Bank of Georgia headquarters, formerly the Georgian SSR’s Ministry of Highway Construction. For a hint of today’s Tbilisi, there is the tubular steel Rike Park Concert Hall and Exhibition Center, which shines on the bank of the Mtkvari River. The juxtaposition between old and new in Tblisi makes for breathtaking vistas—no matter which style of architecture you prefer.

Above, a look at the city’s range of stunning architecture, as captured by photographer Ryan Koopmans", - Article reads.
