Telegraph Includes Tbilisi on List of 21 Must-Visit European Cities

UPDATED 01/04: British daily The Telegraph has included Tbilisi on its list of "21 European cities you never thought to visit but definitely should."

Tbilisi takes fourth place, after Bergamo (Italy), Skopje (Macedonia), and Treviso (Italy).

The Telegraph advises its readers to get lost in the splendor of the Georgian capital, noting that Tbilisi itself means “warm” and touting our underground springs and sulpher baths.

The article then refers to the recommendations from Claire Allfree’s story 'Tbilisi, Georgia: A cultural city guide,' published in The Telegraph, on December 6, 2012, in which she writes: “These days its fine Art Nouveau buildings and pretty, traditional balconied houses are what some would call shabby chic: If any city needed a good lick of Farrow and Ball, this one does. Yet new hotels and shopping malls are springing up. Tbilisi feels like a city finally coming into itself”.

And another quote goes to Katie Melua, the famous Georgian singer based in the UK, from an article also published in Telegraph on April 11,2014 “It’s also steeped in history – the Old Town, with its twisting alleys, is particularly fascinating – and has some beautiful churches dating back hundreds of years. Unlike London, it’s a very hilly city with the advantage being you can enjoy the most fabulous views from certain points. It’s a city that’s very much off the beaten track. Not many tourists have been there, which makes it all the more worth visiting.”
