What are the numbers and averages?
|First constructed in the 4th century, the now-ruined and free-to-enter Narikala Fortress sits proudly in the centre of Tbilisi offering excellent views of the city and Old Town below. There is a church on the grounds and a winding mud path that leads you up through the ruins, but otherwise there’s little here to keep you occupied other than the fantastic cityscape views.|
|If you’ve written a description for Narikala Fortress (Tbilisi) you’d like to share with the community, send it to [email protected] and we’ll post it right here in the directory.|
|Climbing up the fort just for the views is certainly worthwhile, but do be warned that the path isn’t well maintained if you sometimes struggle on your feet.|
|The easiest way to reach the fortress is via the Aerial Tramway from Rike Park. While you’re up here, you may as well visit the expansive National Botanical Garden of Georgia too.|
|It’s possible to walk from here to Mtatsminda Park via the Mtatsminda Park to Narikala Fortress Walking Path if you’re interested, and it shouldn’t take you more than 45 minutes to an hour.|
|There are portaloos just outside of the complex, but although there’s no sign saying so expect an old man to rush out after use to inform you that they cost GEL1.|
