The fifth annual Tbilisi day, dubbed Tbilisoba, will take place in Moscow on Sunday 4 October.

The celebration of the Georgian capital will take place in Moscow’s Hermitage Garden, featuring a range of cultural activities and displays, such as masterclasses by chefs from the best Georgian restaurants in Moscow and the photography exhibition Georgia is My Love. In addition, a range of artisanal goods brought from Georgia will be on sale, including jewellery, souvenirs and furniture.

This year marks the 125th anniversary of the famous Georgian mineral water Borjomi. This event will be celebrated at Tbilisoba with a photography exhibition entitled Legends of Borjomi, which will trace the history of the mineral water source since its discovery by the Imperial Russian military in the 1820s.

Tbilisoba will begin at 12pm on Sunday 4 October at the Hermitage Garden in central Moscow. Entrance is free.
