Tbilisi is the capital and largest city of Georgia. It is located in the central part of the country on the slopes of the Little Caucasus. Despite its mountainous location, it is not cold here as the city lies in the subtropical climate zone and even in winter the temperature does not drop below zero. The name of the town comes from the Georgian word "tbili", i.e. warm. Nevertheless, this name does not refer to temperature, but to numerous hot springs in the city, which according to the legend, enchanted the Georgian king so much that he decided to set up the city in their vicinity. Today Tbilisi attracts tourists not only with its magnificent thermal baths, but also its multicultural character and abundance of historical monuments, both European and Arab ones.
