This is the cathedral of the Holy Trinity, which was built in Avlabari on the hill of St. Elijah. Now it is the largest cathedral in Georgia in general and in Tbilisi in particular. It is visible from anywhere in the city center. This is a kind of symbol of modern Georgia, while its existence causes much less discussion than it could. There are also negative and positive assessments. Having studied the situation on the spot, I personally decided that it was built well. There are disadvantages, but it could be much worse, given the features of the area.
This is the city fortress of Tbilisi, something like a citadel. It is built high on a rock at the end of the Sololaki range and is clearly visible from all the central points in the city. In this fortress, there have never been major temples or palaces, and this is how Narikala differs from many others. The function of this fortress is purely defensive.
The botanical garden is located in the heart of the capital of Georgia south of the Sololaki Ridge, in the valley of the Tsavkisiskali River. Like many attractions, it dates back to the end of the 19th century, when the royal garden was situated here. During the existence of this artificial reserve, the garden area has increased to 128 hectares, several beautiful bridges have been laid through the most inaccessible places of the garden, its collection has made over 3,500 rare plants. In some places, the composition of the flora is decorated with artificial fountains and picturesque waterfalls, which are typical for Georgian nature.

It’s a small lake located three kilometers southwest of Tbilisi on the northern slope of Mtatsminda Mountain. The name of the lake came from the abundance of turtles, which used to live in these places. The lake is fed by a small river Varaziskhevi (the tributary of the Kura), the area is 0.4 km². The lake is located at an altitude of 686.7 m above sea level, its area is 0.034 km ², the maximum depth is 2.6 m.
Turtle Lake is a popular recreation area for Tbilisi residents and guests of the city, around the lake there is a comfortable pebble beach. You can climb to the lake by road or by cable car from the Vake Park. To the west of the lake there is the Tbilisi Ethnographic Open-Air Museum.
Tbilisi Ethnographic Open-Air Museum
Ethnographic museum of Georgian folk architecture in the open air is located 3 km to the southwest from Tbilisi on the Turtle Lake. It was founded in 1960. Today it is one of the most visited museums in Georgia, and includes more than a hundred exhibits in its collection. However, the uniqueness of this museum is that the whole exposition of the museum is a kind of Georgian village, where every house and manor is a reflection of different epochs of Georgian history.
