These ancient, naturally occurring hot springs have been a cornerstone of Georgian wellness for centuries, drawing locals and travelers alike to indulge in their healing waters.

Steeped in history, the Sulfur Baths are said to have been discovered by Tbilisi's founder, King Vakhtang Gorgasali, in the 5th century. As the city grew, these therapeutic waters became an integral part of daily life, giving rise to a thriving bathhouse culture.

As you soak in the therapeutic waters, surrounded by the stunning architecture of domed brick ceilings and intricate tilework, it's hard not to feel transported to another time. Immerse yourself in this ancient oasis of wellness, and let the healing power of Tbilisi's Sulfur Baths soothe your body, mind, and soul.
