The city is at a height of 380-770 m above sea level and has the shape of an amphitheatre surrounded by mountains on three sides. Tbilisi covers an area of 350 km², 40 % of which is constructed and developed. It has more than 1.300.000 inhabitants. Tbilisi was founded in the 5th century and made into a capital in the 6th century. Tbilisi is an economic, administrative and cultural heartland of Transcaucasia. It’s located strategically at the crossroads between Europe and Asia and emerging as an important transit route for global energy and trade projects. Historically it has been home to peoples from different cultures, religions and ethnicities.The Old Tbilisi is combining residential, religious, trade, industrial and cultural functions. It largely defines the beauty and flavor of the capital, with its medieval buildings and courtyards, narrow streets, overhanging balconies and the famous sulfur baths district several hundred metres from the Metekhi Church (1278–89). The Mother Georgia statue is one of the main sights of the city, dating back to the soviet period. Notable tourist destinations are Rustaveli Avenue (the main street of the city) and Freedom Square. The Academy of Science (1941) is one of Tbilisi's most important educational and cultural facilities. 00:06:59
