And now a little about the capital. Tbilisi - Ancient "Tiflisi" on the shores of the River Kura - the capital of Georgia, its cultural, economic and political center, but still very interesting and diverse city.

According to the legend, which like to tell local residents, once the king Vakhtang Gorgasali went to falconry, his bird chased the pheasant, which was trying to survive in the reservoir, and both of them immediately got cooked in a hot spring. King decided to immortalize the beloved falcon in the history, and Tbilisi has arisen here.
