26 What Modern Tbilisi Looks Like

What Modern Tbilisi Looks Like


Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, has seen a lot of changes in the last couple of years. Old buildings go through the stage of reconstruction, the city is clean and nice. In case of a better service the place would resemble a European city.

Many buildings in the old streets in the center of the city have gone through the stage of reconstruction.

Regular houses typical of the Soviet epoch are located in the suburbs.

General view.

The television tower situated in a park was built in 1972 and is 179,2 meters high above the sea level.

By the way, the lights were on only once: when there was a war conflict with Russia.

The railway station is a complex embracing an entertainment and trade centers. Now the station is reconstructed so that it could lead to the airport.

The Dinamo Stadium was built in 1976. It could first hold 35 000 spectators and was increased later on after the local football team had won the match. That was the third biggest stadium in the USSR with 78 000 places.

The official residence of the Georgian president is situated in one of historical areas of the country. It was built in 2004-2009 by several architects and is a classic horizontal building covered with a glass dome. A cubic house to the south of it is the Stationery Office. The palace doesn’t look nice. It was decided to demolish the building and substitute it by a more successful project.

Let’s take a closer view. Abundance of European flags is really surprising as Georgia has never been included in the euro zone and will hardly ever be once. The ancient area around the palace never saw repairs and was just separated from the residence by a wall of flags.  Usage of central conditioning was avoided for some unknown reasons and two conditioner blocks were mounted into the wall instead.

The Church of Holy Trinity is the main orthodox cathedral in Georgia.

Old buildings in the center after reconstruction.

Central streets look good.

But Tbilisi can not be considered as a European capital yet as too much work is left here.

Local yards.

Passengers have access to very useful information which tells them when buses are expected to arrive.

The Bridge of Peace is located in a nice park.

The bridge consists of a steel body which is 156 meters long covered with glass. It was opened by May 6, 2010.

Michele De Lucchi was an architect.

It is a bright example of modern architecture which looks good.

In spite of the fact the cafes are rather comfortable the service is of a bad quality.

A wonderful view of the night city.

    There’s no more damage or dereliction in these photos than you would see in any capital in Europe. Just explore Paris or London slightly off the tourist trail

    This city looks very attractive. The mix of modern and the old reminds me of parts of malaysia. The commentary is shamefully biased. Why even show these pictures if you hate Georgia so much. From these pictures I would put Georgia on my list of places to visit.

      Unfortunately, no media is unbiased. Just do the research yourself on something you’re interested in but make it from a large variety. No U.S. news is unbiased. The most unbiased news source I’ve found is BBC News. If you go to Georgia, submit a pic of you in Gori at the J.Stalin Museum. And wear a Marlins cap in the pic.

      Love/hate relationships. Many of us have had them…

    Tbilisi citizens call the bridge Always sanitary towel.

  4. Anon150 says:

    This looks like a city with some real possibilities!

    With a little coordination and some general agreement among the people, I’d be willing to bet some juicy tourist/travel dollars could be brought into Tblisi.

    Good luck to Georgia!

  5. Uncledoh says:

    looks good and has a certain charm.

  6. luther says:

    Hope the bridge of peace holds up in a windstorm.

  7. Duncan says:

    A very beautiful city, love the last night shot. Just gorgeous.

  8. Vladimir Kobikchov says:

    It looks like a very nice place but sadly it will not last. The north and south Osetia issue will continue to plague Georgia over and over.

  9. Musa says:

    I know that’s a really cool picture. 🙂

  10. scowl says:

    Well, now I know where my silver corvette ended up. I sure hope the new “owner” is enjoying it.

  11. Boston Bloke says:

    Bridge of Peace is a nice example of architecture. Let’s just hope Georgia’s neighbors understand the meaning of the word “peace”!

  12. marxistworker says:

    Well folks here we are again (in Georgia). Home of that Bolshevik killing, marxist hating sociopath Tsar Djugashvili. Kind of like being in Texas. Both places have a lot of hillbillies (internally if not externally).

  13. giorgi says:

    The first photo looks very strange to me. A building with many windows seems to be the Philharmonic Hall, but I really do not remember so many apartment buildings up on the hill seen on the picture. A building with a dome on the left side of the Philharmonic Hall is definitely Tbilisi State University, but that’s also strange, because the university in fact should not be on that side. can someone tell me from where this picture is taken?

  14. Boritz says:

    Not bad. Looks like they filled in most of the bomb craters.

  15. Bloodhound says:

    But seriously, there is nothing to write home about Tbilisi in all honesty. Looks like a Gheto i know in Cairo.

  16. John says:

    What Tbilisi has to do with Russia ?
    You Russians never learn
    Your empire is gone FOREVER

  17. Patrick says:

    Tbilisi is a very beautiful city. I’m from America and found it very charming and the people were wonderful. Georgia is a great country! Some of the pictures don’t show the nicer parts of Tbilisi at all.

  18. USSR says:

    Liked The Church of Holy trinity… But the rest of the city is the mixture of old Soviet era block buildings and shanty houses. And presidental palace looks kitchy too surrounded by slums.

  19. Natalia says:

    The first photo is just a photoshop 🙂 the buildins shown on it are located in an absolutely different parts of the city and collected here for an “impression”. And the comment about the TV tower being on only once is just reduculous 🙂 I see it from my window every day :)) Anyways, the purpose of this entire post is more than clear…
