Baku and Tbilisi are both pretty stunning with lots of historic architecture.

Baku has the seaside/lakeside, Yerevan has the best skyline (no skyscraper can beat Ararat), and Tbilisi has the best historic architecture they say.

Old street with typical georgian othodox church in the background




Such balconies are common for Tbilisi old town

thanks for the pictures, looks good. I know Tblisi primarely from its constructivist landmarks (also this former mariage palace is in Tblisi, isn't it? I heard it is a house these days)

Tbilisi looks very nice, but still too many commie blocks. I heard Baku was rated the dirtiest city in the world. I don't think it's very nice there.

Here is Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan
