Getting to Grips with Tbilisi Expat Life

Located near the southeast edge of Europe on the banks of the Mtkvari River, Tbilisi is Georgia's largest and most populous city, housing around a quarter of the country's population. Tbilisi has had a troubled history, from civil conflict and mafia wars that stifled the city's prospects throughout much of the 20th century to more recent devastating floods. However, the Georgian people are resilient and world famous for their hospitality, and the country has seen considerable economic and social development in the 21st century. Many expats are drawn to Tbilisi by opportunities in the industrial and service sectors, and by strong connections to the wider Caucasus region. It's worth noting that while Azerbaijan and Armenia have virtually no positive diplomatic relations due to ongoing disputes, Georgia maintains relatively good relations with both countries, making Tbilisi a good strategic location for business operations in the region. A fascinating city that's rich in history and full of heart and soul, Tbilisi should be on the watch list of any expat looking to experience the beauty and diversity of Georgian and Eurasian culture.
