Tbilisoba (Tbilisi City Celebration) as a celebration was first marked on October 28, 1979 and since than it has became the tradition. At the weekend the meeting of the present and past occurs in the city and the old Tbilisi is livened up once again. You will still meet Karachoghelis, water sellers and Kintoes in the street.

Sundays are for fun. Waking up on Sunday morning subconsciously knowing that it’s a day off feels just nice. Most people I know try to relax on Sundays. They go out of town, fishing, sailing, spending the day with the family.
