Stairs of Narikala castle
Henri Bergius, Routa MC
The city’s main citadel, which dates from the 4th Century AD.
The Narikala Fortress sits above the Tbilisi botanical gardens, one can stroll the gardens and view the fortress quite well. Enter the fortress only with a guide, caution is urged.
Look for two steel doors entering a hillside in the garden and have a look at the largest bomb shelter I have ever seen, built Soviet style. This is a tunnel which runs through the hill all the way to the center of the city again caution is urged.
Tbilisi is a wonderful city for wine and food lovers, excellent resturants and very resonable. However, hard times always present some problems and unemployment is high.
