1. History Memorial Chronicles of Georgia

Appreciate a spectacular view of the city.

History Memorial Chronicles of Georgia is a Monument located near the Tbilisi Sea. This monument is at the top of a hill overlooking the city.

After you get to the hill, you head up the stairs towards the massive 16 pillars which are engraved with various images related to the history of Tbilisi and Georgia as a whole.

On the backside of the History Memorial Chronicles of Georgia, you will find a small Orthodox Church as well as a beautiful view across the Tbilisi Lake.

During the winter season it can be a bit of a challenge to get to the top so it is advisable to visit when it’s not too cold or too hot like in August.

All said, a trip here is totally worth it and especially for people who love photography.

3. Aerial Tramway in Tbilisi

This is the mountain cable car system in Tbilisi Georgia.

The cable cars allow you to have a great 3600 view of Georgia’s capital as you rise up to different levels and angles.

You get to see over the park area that you just left behind as well as the top of the Peace Bridge, the river below and the many churches and rooftops of the rustic buildings in Tbilisi that you pass.

This is the mountain cable car system in Tbilisi Georgia. Aerial Tramway in Tbilisi connects Rike Park to the left bank side of the Mtkvari river and the Narikala Fortess to the opposite side.

The best and maybe most beautiful time to climb is in the evening when the city is lit because the lights give such a beautiful scene on the skyline.

The aerial tram is definitely worth experiencing as an activity when you visit Georgia.
