Day 5 in Tbilisi we caught up on leftover plans from the previous days!
We started our day with the Rustaveli Street Market, which features handmade items from small, local makers. A lot of makers man their stalls themselves and its great to meet them and talk to them while looking at their work. A great place to get some unique Georgian souveneirs to take home (like a colorful lasercut acrylic pin that says 'I love you' in Georgian!)
Next we made our way to the Rike Park for the aerial tramway. Costing just 2.5gel, this tramway takes you up the hill from Rike Park to Narikala Fortress, and affords spectacular views along the way.
Upon getting off, our destination was the zipline at the Botanical Gardens. I'm surprised there wasn't a longer line for it! It cost 40gel per person, and takes sailing through spelndid green views of the park. There are two lines side by side, so you can do it together with a partner!
We landed in the middle of the Botanical Gardens, and what a lovely place to spend an afternoon it was! We were searching for the Sulphur Waterfalls, where we spent a good amount of time just listening to the waterfall and enjoying it's spray on our faces and bodies. (It was Sulphur water, so a good shower and sone laundry were in order when we got home!)
We trekked out of the park to a cafe overlooking the river and the city, where we enjoyed delicious Beef Mtsvadi and drinks, before it started pouring down! Us and other guests huddled along with cafe workers inside a tiny tent covering the kitchen of this totally open air cafe, watching the rain wash Tbilisi and paint the sunset sky in gorgeous pinks and purples 💜
