Tbilisi - old quarter

Tbilisi (Georgian: თბილისი) is the capital city of the country of Georgia and straddles the banks of the Mtkvari river. The city covers an area of 726km² (280.3 square miles) and has a rapidly growing population of approximately 1,345,000.

Tbilisi lies in the center of eastern Georgia, in the foothills of the Trialeti mountain range. According to Georgian legends, it was founded in the 5th century by King Vakhtang Gorgasali who, while hunting, shot a pheasant which fell into a warm spring and was either boiled or healed. Either way, the king was inspired to found a city on the site, and the name of the city derives from the Georgian word tbili meaning "warm".
