I think we have all heard of a "retail therapy" – shopping that makes us feel happy. Anybody who has felt a little bit better after buying a gift for himself/herself realized the power of shopping. Many people love shopping especially while they travel to a new country, so if you are one of them, believe me, Georgia and Tbilisi will not disappoint you. Here are the top three shopping destinations in Tbilisi for shopping lovers.
Tbilisi Mall is the first large complex in the Southern Caucasus that met globally recognized standards. A modern center combines leisure, retail and entertainment in one building. Tbilisi Mall is not just for shopping. It is far more than that. The mall occupies four floors. It comprises around 150 stores of famous international and local brands, a 15,000 m2 for the hypermarket and a 1,000 m2 for the entertainment center. In addition, there is an underground parking with 2,700 parking spaces.
The interior of Tbilisi mall is very modern and colorful. A very dynamic shopping center hosts many festivals, celebrations of national and international holidays, and many different events that embrace Georgian culture. On the last floor of the mall, there is a five-hall-cinema Cavea that offers the widest choice of films in Georgia, in 3 languages – English, Georgian and Russian. During shopping, don’t forget to take a lunch break in one of the many restaurants and cafes that are located in Tbilisi mall.
Another favorite destination for shopping lovers is East Point. When you enter this shopping mall, the whole new world opens in front of you. It has a very innovative architecture. This shopping center is not located in one building as Tbilisi Mall, but it is more like a shopping and entertainment city. Most of the stores are located in separate buildings, and yet they harmoniously mix with each other. This is a great place to have fun and enjoy with your friends and family.
East Point has gone an extra mile to provide their guests with entertainment that is tailored for their different desires. Bowling, 8-ball pool, Cavea Cinema, IMAX Movie Theater, and, the most important for children, Focus Mokus are waiting for you there. Focus Mokus is the largest entertainment center in Georgia, which offers a wide range of attractions for every age. It consists of 15 major attractions, more than 60 video and redemption games, thematic family restaurant, a stage for animation programs, and three party rooms for birthday celebrations.
Galleria Tbilisi is a newly opened shopping center in the heart of the city, that is located on Liberty Square. It also offers entertainment places such as cinema, theatre, bowling and kids zone. You can shop here in many brand shops from mid to high-end fashion retailers. Galleria Tbilisi is a six-floor shopping center. I am sure here everybody can find something for themselves to improve their mood.
I think Tbilisi is a great destination for shopping lovers. The price range is suitable for everybody. You can find amazing clothes from affordable to luxury. These three shopping centers will satisfy the desires of every type of shopping lovers. Do not forget to check local designers’ shops as well. Have fun and shop as much as you like and remember - if you cannot stop thinking about it… buy it!
