About Development – Tbilisi Sea
Tbilisi is about 278 km (173 miles) from the sea but Tbilisians don’t have to travel that far to sunbathe on a beach – they go to Tbilisi Sea.
Located to the north-east of the city, Tbilisi Sea (Georgian: თბილისის ზღვა) is a large artificial lake just 20 minutes drive from the city center.
It is a little bit higher than the town, making it one of the most popular destinations for swimming and sunbathing in the summer time for residents and visitors to Tbilisi.
Georgia About was at Tbilisi Sea today and enjoyed the warm water and wonderful views.
Tbilisi City Hall has announced a plan to develop the area. A project, called “Tbilisi Recreational Zone” will create large green spaces, recreational facilities, new housing and hotel development.
One of the major features will be a water park, sports and recreational complex, which is expected to open in 2013.
Built to international standards it will have the capacity to serve 800,000 visitors per annum.
The project will also see the existing city centre zoo replaced by a zoological complex adjacent to the lake.
Georgia About is looking forward to the new Tbilisi Sea facilities!
