“Now the city’s contemporary culture is making its mark, earning the city a reputation as an edgy party destination” – the article reads.

The author of article mentions Fabrika, one of the most favorite places for young people in Georgia.

As a conclusion, leading British publication highly recommends to consider Georgia among your must-visit list. “Last year, Georgian Airlines started direct flights from Gatwick (a major international airport in south-east England), and though they’re not the most convenient connections (flying through the night on Wednesday or Saturday), it still halves the journey time to this dynamic city” – The Guardian reports.

After Tbilisi, there are 38 more amazing travel destinations on the list, with Palermo, the Sicilian capital on the 3rd position, Leeuwarden-Friesland, Greece, Flanders, Paris, Valletta, Amsterdam, Corsica, Bratislava, Valencia, Cairo, Fez, South Africa, etc.
