Must see places in Tbilisi, Part 2
If you are in Tbilisi, you should not miss visiting these places: 1. Aghmashenebeli Avenue – It is one of the most beautiful streets in Tbilisi. This newly renovated avenue has caught Forbes’ attention too. A mixture of European, Asian, and Soviet architecture as well as Italian yards do not compete with each other but blend together in this area. There is an archway on the avenue, through which you can observe an Italian yard, where a group of families share
the same yard. The houses along this avenue have preserved their old and unique architecture, as well as the traditions of the neighbourhood culture. The Avenue itself hosts various Asian, European and Georgian cafes, shopping places, theatres and the Marjanishvili metro station.

2. Fabrika – near to the Aghmashenebeli Avenue, Egnate Ninoshvili St.8, visitors can find a very interesting place. Fabrika was a Soviet sewing building that was reconstructed two years ago in order to put all artists and art lovers together. The property offers comfortable accommodation with well-decorated private or dormitory rooms, combining vintage and modern style. This multifunctional cultural center includes cafes, bars, art studios and shops, hostel and educational institutions. Fabrika offers its guests various events such as flea markets, films screenings, concerts, etc. One of its major merits is its urban style graffiti and a large open space in the courtyard.

3. Open Air Museum of Ethnography - The Open Air Museum was founded on the 27th April, 1966. It is located in Tbilisi's Vake district, to the west of "Turtle Lake". The Open Air Museum is made up of 14 ethnographic zones: Kartli, Samegrelo, Adjara, Abkhazia, Svaneti, Khevsureti, Kakheti, Meskheti, Javakheti, Guria, Imereti, Racha, Lechkhumi and Ossetia (Georgian regions). Each exhibit displays a certain historic-ethnographic area of Georgia. Together with architectural monuments, the museum presents ethnographic materials - different kinds of tools, textiles, and ceramics. The museum also includes the 5th-6th century basilica of Sioni, as well as a rich collection of grave stones. The venue hosts one of the most popular festivals Art Gene, popularizing Georgian folk and modern musicians and bands, local cuisine, handcraft and dances.

4. Vake Park - The park was opened in 1946 as an example of a Socialist Classical park, having a grand entry and huge stairs. It is located in the Vake district of Tbilisi at the western end of Chavchavadze Avenue. The ethnographic museum is directly above it - about a 30 minute walk through the forest. There are also several beer gardens, beautiful nature and fountains. On the top of the hill in the park, there is a large World War II Memorial. It is calm, with beautiful red sand, and some rides for the children. A perfect place to relax and have fun with your friends and children.

5. The Georgian National Gallery (Rustaveli Ave.11) - The Georgian National Gallery was established in 1920. Dimitri Shevardnadze, a well-known Georgian painter, contributed significantly to the development of the gallery. The building was originally established as a Russian military and historic museum, known as the Temple of Glory, intended to reflect the power of the Russian Empire and its colonies. Artefacts from the Temple of Glory were evacuated during the First World War. In 2007, the National Gallery joined the Georgian National Museum complex. The main gallery building was once again renovated. It encompasses a modern exhibition gallery, eight exhibition halls, a restoration laboratory, temporary exhibit area, a training space, and a gift shop. Since its foundation, the gallery has served to promote the development of Georgia’s fine arts.
