    I know little about Georgia other than the bits I pick up online and from the words of my friends who had once gone on vacation in the European country. Tbilisi was said to be a beautiful City and the pictures my friends took at the sites they visited were enough testimony. My friends had lodged at the Pushkin 10 hotel and I can still recollect how much fun they said they had. It made me quite envious for not having gone along with them.

  • James

    Hi, I great post about some decent places to stay in Tbilisi. It sounds a great place to visit. Full of history and unspoilt charm. I think I would head there at the end of summer when it is not to hot but still warm. I travelled in Poland in the summer so know how hot it gets in Eastern Europe in the summer. I believe there are more flights to Tbilisi (when there is not a pandemic going on!) now more than ever so it makes a great long weekend destination from where I’m from (UK).
