Old Town by Natia Rekhviashvili in Tbilisi, Georgia

Tbilisi is located on the southeastern edge of Europe. Throughout history, its proximity to lucrative east-west trade routes often made the city a point of contention between rival empires. Historically, Tbilisi has been home to people of diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. You will find a lot of diversity in the city’s food, cultural products, and festivals. Even though it’s a city of about one million people, you’ll find 17th century houses, lakes, and churches on top of mountains.
