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!

    I find this a most beautiful country. I have to save up because some day I have to see this wonderful place that fought so hard to become one in it’s self. The sea so gorgeous, the landscape so enticing. And of course the people and wonderful dog and cat that I have met here are just “peaches and cream”. Thanks you for sharing such a beautiful place and beautiful friendship online.

    • Thank you for your wonderful comments Diane. I am so pleased that you like our country and want to visit some day. You would receive a great welcome!

    It looks like a great place to swim so close to where you live. It sounds like it will be even more awesome when all the improvements are completed.

    Wow — that’s an amazing place, even without the new development. But that will make it all the more attractive. I’m with Diane: I think I need to save my money too, because Georgia would be a beautiful place to visit!

    • The animals at the city zoo will be moved to a new zoological complex adjacent to the lake Chuck. I’ve see the concept design – it will be great!
