About Sights – Pastel colored houses and balconies of Tbilisi’s Old Town
Tbilisi’s Old Town (Georgian: ძველი თბილისი) is renowned for its picturesque pastel colored wooden and traditional brick houses with open, carved balconies. The houses are mainly 19th century as much of the city was destroyed by the devastating Persian invasion of 1795.
Much of the Old Town has been restored under a scheme introduced by the Tbilisi government in 2009. Called “New Life for Old Tbilisi”, the scheme is restoring and rehabilitating Tbilisi’s historical districts and neighborhoods.
