Tbilisi: the city observed

Great photoset of Tbilisi by Geir Engene:
View of Tbilisi's Old Town and Metekhi Church. The photo was taken from on top of the city's centuries-old fort walls.
View to the other direction, showing the botannical gardens
Metekhi Church on the Mtkvari river (that's two syllables: "mtkwa-ri")
Old town architecture

Tbilisi's old town is famous for its rickety balconies and horizontal extensions
The metal market
The grand bazaar. Alleys like this wind infinitely in every direction.
