German low-cost carrier Eurowings will launch a direct flight between Prague and Tbilisi.
The carrier will start flying between the two capitals from 30 October 2023.
The flight will be operated twice a week – on Mondays and Fridays. The journey time will be 3 hours and 40 minutes.
Tickets are already on sale. The cost of one-way flight at basic fare (with hand luggage only) starts from 3500 CZK.
It will be the second direct flight between the Czech Republic and Georgia. At the moment, the Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air flies from Prague to Kutaisi (Georgia’s second largest city).
The Georgian destination is becoming increasingly popular among Czech tourists. The visa-free regime between the countries, which has been in place since 2005, also contributes to the popularity.
What to visit
Tbilisi offers a charming mix of both cultures, and plenty to do. Cobblestone streets wind through Old Town, a sprawling maze of historic buildings like the Anchiskhati Basilica, which dates back to the sixth century.
On Rustaveli Avenue, you’ll find a string of art museums and so many world-class cafes you’ll feel “like you could be in Paris,” according to a Money reader. Pop into one of the local vintner shops to sample fine Georgian wine.
Getting around Tbilisi is fairly easy — you can walk to many of the city’s attractions or use the subway (be prepared to go deep underground, the tunnels once doubled as bomb shelters). And since many Georgians are multilingual, asking locals for directions is usually a breeze.
Tbilisi’s nightlife is another major draw. Fabrika, a converted button factory that’s been converted into a 400-room hostel, is one of the busiest hot spots, where locals and travelers alike mingle in the array of cafes and bars in the hostel’s courtyard. The sulfur baths of Tbilisi’s Abanotubani district are another must-do.
