Dangers & Annoyances

Tbilisi, like Georgia as a whole, feels very safe. Just exercise normal vigilance as you would in any new foreign city. Take a taxi if you’re uneasy about walking or taking public transport.


  • Tbilisi is full of ATMs issuing lari on MasterCard, Visa, Cirrus and Maestro cards.
  • Plenty of exchange offices (including at every metro station and the main bus stations and train station) provide lari in exchange for cash euros, US dollars and often roubles, sterling, Turkish lira, Armenian drams or Azerbaijani manat.


The three main mobile networks all have downtown shops.
