Narikala Fortress

This ancient fortress sits on top of a hill right next to the National Botanical Garden and enjoys an unrivalled view over the city. For this reason it had been a key strategic point in the city's defence for many centuries, until it was almost destroyed in an earthquake in 1827. Visitors can reach the fortress on foot or with the new cable car from Rike Park.

Do & See

Museums, churches, historical sites and buildings, green open spaces and much more await you in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. Surrounded by mountains and crossed by the Kura River, the city combines the ancient and the modern with a good mix of old streets, dotted with decadent buildings, along with brand new sights and attractions, such as the 360-degree cable car, which takes you up to the Narikala Fortress and lets you enjoy a spectacular view, and the stunning Bridge of Peace, made of steel and glass and beautifully illuminated at night.
