Stories of Sololaki
The Georgian capital’s rich inhabitants of the second half of the 19th century competed against each other over who could build the most beautiful and extraordinary town house.
Because of their money and enthusiasm for new trends in architecture a unique style evolved – “Caucasus Modern”. And Sololaki district is a true gem of that style.
Most houses were planned and built for two main functions: living and letting. The first floors were let for commercial purposes, while the second floor was used for private accommodation.
Take this walking tour through Sololaki and take part in our quest, while learning fascinating stories, and legends along the way!

Frequently Asked Questions
While guided tours are certainly fun and informative, a self-guided walking tour has several benefits:
First, it costs less.
Second, it provides flexibility. You can start the Quest on any day and at any time that is convenient for you. If your plans change or the weather turns, you can reschedule without hassle. You don’t have to book a tour at a specific time, just go when you want!
Thirdly, you can go at your own pace. On a self-guided tour, you’re not locked into the route, and you don’t have to keep up with the group. You can race through the Quest, or go at a leisurely pace. You can stop for a detour, to get a coffee or go shopping. We love the flexibility of a self-guided tour and think you will too!
You don’t need much to Quest. Just bring your smartphone or tablet connected to the internet.
We also recommend:
Weather appropriate gear. Tbilisi sun can be fierce, so bring water, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen for hot weather. Tbilisi weather can also change faster than you can say ‘four seasons in one day’ so a jacket might be a good idea too. Just check the forecast.
Comfortable walking shoes. You’re on a walking tour after all, and you don’t want your poor feet to be worn out halfway through.
Absolutely! Geotrend prides itself on creating a family-friendly experience that is both enjoyable and educational. Children will learn essential skills like navigation, following directions and problem solving. They will be exposed to history, culture, art, architecture and food in a fun and interesting way. Keep in mind that the Quests involve between 2-4 kilometers of walking and that small children may need help. Of course children should always be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Each Quest starts in a central location which is easy to reach by public transport or car. Just check the Quest page and/or email from our manager for the start point before you embark and plan to meet your friends or family there.
The puzzle difficulty varies depending on the Quest you complete, so check the product page for details. Most of our Quests are designed to be only mildly challenging for the average adult. If you are interested in a very challenging Quest, or an easy one for small children, please express your interest by emailing us at [email protected]
This really depends on how fast you want to go. The front of each Quest tour page have an estimated time, based on an average pace. But you can race through the Quest if you like, or spend all day on it, stopping along the way as you like.
Of course! If you would like to set up a friendly competition, all you have to do is order selected Quest tour links based on 4 participants per one tour link scheme, arrange teams and a start time, and go! The first group to solve the puzzle and reach the final destination wins! 😉
If you are having trouble finding or solving a clue, we encourage you to keep trying! Use all your resources – search the Internet or ask passers-by for help. If you are truly stuck, don’t panic! Our most difficult questions have a “Hint” option at the top of a question page.
Since Tbilisi is an ever-changing landscape, this indeed may happen. You can just enter any answer, press “Next” and move along to the next clue. Please let us know so we can update the Quest if necessary.
