Tbilisi, Georgia (Georgia (country)) Commons:Category:Tbilisi


'''Tbilisi''' ( ), formerly known as '''Tiflis''', is the capital (capital city) and the largest city (List of cities and towns in Georgia (country)) of Georgia (Georgia (country)), lying on the banks of the Mtkvari River (Kura River) with a population of roughly 1.5 million inhabitants. Founded in the 5th century by the monarch of Georgia's ancient precursor Kingdom of Iberia (Caucasian Iberia), Tbilisi has since served, with intermissions, as the Georgian capital. Formerly, the city had also served as the seat of the Imperial administration (Caucasus Viceroyalty (1844–81)) of the Caucasus during the Russian (Russian Empire) rule from 1801 to 1917, the capital of the short-lived Transcaucasian Democratic Federative Republic in 1918, of the Democratic Republic of Georgia from 1918 to 1921, of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic from 1921 to 1991, and the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic from 1922 to 1936.

Located on the southeastern edge of Europe, Tbilisi's proximity to lucrative east-west trade routes (Silk Road) often made the city a point of contention between various rival empires throughout history and the city's location to this day ensures its position as an important transit route for global energy and trade projects. Tbilisi's varied history is reflected in its architecture, which is a mix of medieval (medieval architecture), classical (Neoclassical architecture), and Soviet structures (Stalinist architecture).

Historically, Tbilisi has been home to people of diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, though it is overwhelmingly Eastern Orthodox Christian (Eastern Orthodox Church). Notable tourist destinations include cathedrals like Sameba (Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi) and Sioni (Tbilisi Sioni Cathedral), classical Freedom Square (Freedom Square, Tbilisi) and Rustaveli Avenue, medieval Narikala Fortress (Narikala), pseudo-Moorish (Moorish Revival architecture#Moorish Revival in Europe) Opera Theater (Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre), and the Georgian National Museum.
