Unseen Tbilisi: TV Tower | Georgia Travel

Unseen Tbilisi: TV Tower

There are some places in Georgia, which are not attended by the tourists: either entrance is prohibited, or people just don't know those places exist. We decided to show you some.

For example, each visitor to Tbilisi has seen our beautiful TV Tower, from where all the radio stations and TV channels used to broadcast. Now it is also a huge part of broadcasting system, but TV market development and increasing number of TV channels have forced them to move out to bigger studios. Still, the tower itself is not a touristic place (yet).

Though, Georgia and Travel's blogger was allowed to go up there. The tower keeper, Yurii, was very kind to let us film there, so you can enjoy awesome views of Tbilisi from the highest point in the whole city: 180 m over Mtatsminda mountain!

On the first level of elevator we caught this view, and were very inspired. But if we only knew what is waiting for us up there!

And here was the view over Mtatsminda park and even villages behind Tbilisi!
