Tbilisi, Jewish Quarter
Tbilisi is a gem of a city. Situated at a spectacular gorge at the muddy yellow-brownish river Jvari, its old town looks like an 19th-century eastern European town, which was preserved in a time capsule for 200 years. When you stroll through the quiet, narrow alleyways and green squares between Rustaveli square and Meidan square you can't help but notice that homogeneity of the beautiful architecture. In fact the wooden houses with their fancy balconies and crumbling, yet colourful facades are all witnesses to the epoch, when modern Tbilisi was born: A time capsule which takes you straight to the year 1801. http://kodexomnipolis.blogspot.de/2013/02/tbilisi.html
