Tbilisi (pronunciation T'bee'lee'see) (literally "Warm Spring") is the capital and the largest city of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Mtkvari River. Founded in the 5th century by Vakhtang Gorgasali, the Georgian King, and made into a capital, Tbilisi is a significant industrial, social, and cultural center. Located strategically at the crossroads between Europe and Asia and lying along the historic Silk Road routes. The history of the city can be seen by its architecture, where the Rustaveli Avenue and downtown are blended with the narrower streets of the old medieval Dzveli Tbilisi district, which makes Tbilisi landscape breathtaking. Welcome to the cultural hub of Caucasus, Tbilisi!
