In my posts about our time in Tbilisi, I have skipped over one of the highlights, which was the profusion of street art. From formal bronze statues to graffiti, you can’t go far without spotting some creativity that amuses or inspires.
Instead of traffic lights in the centre of Tbilisi, there are walkways under the main roads to enable pedestrians to cross safely. Many are filled with small shops, but any blank walls are painted, or covered with graffiti or posters. This is very popular location for street art. There is a lot of construction too, and hoardings form excellent canvasses. Of course, there are formal gardens and public statues throughout the city.
Here is a gallery of some of our favourites. A quick google search will tell you that there is a lot more and probably better street art in other parts of Tbilisi – this is just a collection of what we happened to see in passing. Lots more to discover on our next trip (whenever that may be).
If you are planning a trip to Tbilisi, here are some resources you might find helpful:
- All my Tbilisi posts can be found here.
- I have saved lots of helpful articles I found to my Georgia Pinterest board.
- I purchased this guidebook on Kindle. It had only one very negative review, but I’m not sure why. We found it very helpful, and particularly enjoyed the self-guided walks. (Note – not an affiliate link, just a recommendation): A City Guide to Tbilisi, Georgia by Stephen Stocks
