Fare Magazine – Issue 6: Tbilisi

by Fare Magazine

Fare connects armchair travelers with immersive and nuanced stories from cities around the world, and also serves as a kind of roadmap for those who are ready to make the actual trip to see things for themselves.

Georgia’s capital is a post-Soviet city with bohemian charm, a brusk meeting point for the country’s diverse gastronomic traditions and ancient viticulture.

In our sixth issue we journey to the heart of the Caucasus region, exploring the incredible regional identities and diverse cuisines which co-mingle in Tbilisi. There, amidst a back-drop of leafy courtyards, gorgeous turn-of-the-century design, and fading grandeur, new and passionate movements are starting to grow.
