What to Do in Tbilisi During Winter


Rejuvenate at the Tbilisi Sulfur Baths

Located at the beginning of the Tbilisi Old Town, or Abanotubani, the Sulphur Baths are a historical place in the Georgian capital that operates the entire year and is especially relaxing during the winter.

They were built approximately in the 13th-century and many famous people, such as Alexander Pushkin, have visited. He made his way there in 1829.


Visit the Narikala Fortress in Tbilisi

Established in the 4th-century, the Narikala Fortress is an iconic and historical symbol of Tbilisi. It has had Persians, Mongols, and Arabs influence it over the many centuries it has stood as a protective forth.

Georgian King David expanded and rebuilt parts of it in the 11th century. From near the fortress, you can get a killer, panoramic view over Tbilisi.




Visit the Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi

It took builders almost ten years to build the Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi, the city’s biggest church. Due to its hilly location, you can see it from so many different parts of the city and it has become one of the main symbols of Tbilisi throughout the years.


Search for Street Art in Tbilisi

There are many places where you can find street art in Tbilisi and it is a blast to do it in winter when the temperatures hit a respectable level. The best thing about hunting for street art in Tbilisi is that a lot of it is kind of hidden or in secret corners.

There are buildings like Fabrika where it is very in your face, but a lot of the time, you will stumble upon street art in Tbilisi when you least expect it.


Try Craft Beer in Tbilisi

Another popular thing to do during the winter in Tbilisi is to drink. And while wine is often the beverage of choice (don’t worry… we will be suggesting that later in this guide), there is an up-and-coming craft beer scene that is happening in Tbilisi.

While it may not be as robust as the beer scene elsewhere, it is getting there and the beer is good.


Go to the Art Museum of Georgia

Also known as the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts, the Art Museum of Georgia is a fantastic place to escape from the winter temperatures and head inside to educate yourself more on the art and history in Georgia.


Make New Friends at Fabrika Tbilisi

Fabrika is part hostel, part coworking area, part everything more. This cultural center has become one of my highlights of going to Tbilisi simply for the fact that it is an easy place to stay, socialize, and eat all at the same time.
