Only after I stopped by Rezo Gabriadze Marionette Theater did I learn that this had been written about in the Washington Post and New York Times (and for good reason).

This is a very unique building and I'm glad we went there to have a look. The tower is under repair so I'm not sure if the 12:00 and 19:00 performances still take place since we were there just after 12:30. Very nice area with some busy cafe's all around.

This is actually part of a threatre. Understand that it is the clock is supposed to be under repair and not sure when it will be done. Nevertheless, it is still very pretty to look at.

Quaint doesn't even begin to cut it! It's pretty and very different. One can sit at one of the cafes dotting the small square and watch the world go by.

Rezo Gabriadze Marionette Theater gets very crowded nights. But you can enjoy going there. You can also have some beer there or having some drinks in bars and coffee shops around.

When you look at it, you think oh that's quite old. But no it's been build only 6 years ago! Chapeau! One of very romantic places in Tbilisi. You could sit in any of bars/restaurants in area and just enjoy the view. Very much recommend!

Really cute place in old town. It is simple to find. I like this type of crazy art buldings. I was just sad that i couldn´t visit performance. But i visited their nice cafe with original atmosphere.

Visited two shows here unfortunately missed the star attraction "Stalingrad" this is a charming theatre custom built and quirky, marionette show is excellent with ramanan for example a love affair between two trains, stories phone , subtitles in English are tongue in cheek sometimes, thoroughly enjoyed both programmes wish I could have taken in more, check timings and buy tickets...
