    Stop At: Dzveli Tbilisi Sulphur Waterfall, Botanikuri st 1 Old Town, Tbilisi 0105 Georgia

    Tbilisi, Georgia isn’t just a city you visit, it’s a city you experience. That means over-indulging in carb-loaded cuisine, accepting shots of homemade chacha, tripping over broken sidewalks in the Old Town while wondering in amazement at the barely-standing buildings…and making a visit to the Tbilisi sulphur baths.

    The ancient Abanotubani District sits below the imposing fortress; the brick, domed rooftops of the baths bubbling up like the water itself. The district is the most historic part of the city, as according to legend, it was the sulphur springs that enticed King Vakhtang Georgasali to settle the land and declare it the new capital city in the 5th century AD. At the height of popularity, there were more than 60 bathhouses in Tbilisi where people could get squeaky clean or stay for a soak, letting the curing Sulphur water ease their ailments.

    The site of the cathedral on Sioni Street has seen a series of buildings dating from the late fifth century.During an invasion by Arabs, this church was leveled and a new structure was built.

    During the following years the cathedral suffered severe damage from foreign raiders and was restored each time. In 1112, King David IV the Builder completely re-built the church that became the basic design for the existing cathedral. During an attack by Mongols in 1226, the church was damaged again but restored anew.

    The cathedral is home to two important Christian relics: cranium of Doubting Thomas and special grapevine cross which,according to tradition, was forged by St. Nino, who brought Christianity to Georgia in the fourth century.
