And, lastly, if you are in Georgia, Tbilisi should be the first place to visit. In winter, when Christmas and New Year’s decorations are installed and the main Christmas tree is lit up, the festive atmosphere is felt in every part of the capital. As Tbilisi is divided into New and Old Tbilisi, the winter illuminations bring particular beauty into both parts.
