Interesting facts about Tbilisi
-Tbilisi has many streams of sulphurous water – that’s why the smell of rotten eggs can be sensed at almost any point in the city. The first sulphurous water streams were discovered in the territory of what’s now the National Botanical Garden.
-For 400 years, the capital of Georgia was an Arab city-state, called the Emirate of Tbilisi. The influence of this period can be seen in the city’s architecture, folk art and even in the genetic make-up of its inhabitants.
-In 2005, one of Tbilisi’s streets – Melanskaja – was renamed and came to be called George W. Bush Street. That’s how the Georgians chose to honour the former president of the United States who was visiting the country at the time.
