I prefer Tblisi, rating the pictures, but I agree it's a close one.

As georgian i have to say that baku is really beautiful city ... but tbilisi is more of historic architecture than baku, some people might prefer modern architecture than historic architecture, but both cities are great


Tbilisi

Nearly nothing from Erevan to compare. Baku and Tbilisi certainly have each its own character. Tbilisi seems to be more interesting for tourist, Baku has more metropolitan feel (lots of it).

Both Baku and Tbilisi are beautiful, but looks like Baku has done more in (if I can say so) bridging past and future, i.e. preserving past while also creating architecture that takes it into 21 century. Being located on the Caspian Sea and having a beautiful sea promenade also creates a definite advantage. The fact that, at the moment, there are J. W. Marriott, Four Seasons, Hilton and Fairmont hotels (to name a few) being constructed at the same time, speaks volumes about how rapidly Baku is becoming a major international tourist destination.

My vote goes to Baku, but I hope to visit Tbilisi one day also.
