Living in Kutaisi

Known locally as "The Ancient Capital of Western Georgia", the city of Kutaisi is one of the country's undiscovered gems. Home to around 200,000 people, it's a comprehensively beautiful city perhaps on a level with cities like Hungary's Budapest and England's Bath. The city in its entirety constitutes a 'sight to see' but expats living in Kutaisi should make sure not to miss the ancient Bagrati Cathedral, the grand Opera House or the 11th century Gelati Monastery, perched above the city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site (as is the cathedral). Perhaps equally striking is the city's Parliament Building, an audaciously futuristic building, opened in 2012 as an attempt to decentralize the country's government. The boldness of this construction hints at the country's attempts to give this historic city a dynamic, modern edge. Sure enough, expats living in Kutaisi have a huge amount of contemporary culture to enjoy, with museums galleries and theatres, and overall the city has managed to blend a beautiful and history outward appearance with a youthful, forward-looking contemporary spirit.

    Thanks looks like a fun time. Having a visible map helps me wander in the correct direction from the Metro! LOL! Too easy to just jump in a cab!

Moving to Kutaisi

Expatriates moving to Kutaisi have two good choices for getting to the city. One is the well-served railway, which links Kutaisi to the Georgian capital, Tbilisi. The other is to fly directly to the David the Builder Kutaisi International Airport, which has been recently renovated and is served by flights from a number of international destinations. As an expat moving to Kutaisi you may want to browse the InterNations website for advice and information on expatriation before or during travel. Our Expat Magazine is full of useful topics like expat finance, family and relationships and cross-cultural communication, with useful hints and tips for what to expect and how to start off as an expat in Kutaisi. We also have some content written by other expatriates, which can be a great way to get a picture of the dos, don'ts, ups and downs of expatriation.

Working in Kutaisi

Kutaisi makes a fantastic base and the city's working life is rapidly being reinvented. A free industrial zone, new Parliament building and other incentives are all under way to attract international investment and the city's traditional rivalry with Tbilisi, the capital, will soon become apparent to expatriates working in Kutaisi. As well as a wealth of architecture, history and culture, the local cuisine and wines are cause for expats in Kutaisi to celebrate. To get the latest information on where to go and what to try, as well as to find other global minds and expatriates in Kutaisi, you can get in touch with the local international community using the InterNations discussion groups, forums and private messages. These constitute an easy way to network, socialize and find other expats working in Kutaisi or Georgia in general.
