Do you want to do an internship abroad? You’ve thought about several destinations and Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, has made it into your top three, but you don’t know if the life there would be right for you? You have come to the right place to get all the information you need before making your final choice!
Going on an internship abroad in Tbilisi means being able to move easily around the city
As in most capitals, it is very easy to get around by public transport in Tbilisi. You can opt for the bus, the mini bus, the tram or the metro. A special feature is that you need a metroman card to get on the metro. It is worth noting that tickets in Tbilisi are relatively inexpensive, as a bus ticket costs an average of 0.33 € cents.
Going on an internship abroad in Tbilisi is a treat
You can do some shopping at the Tbilisi market, which is held five times a week. Beyond the market, Georgia is full of culinary specialties. We had a crush on Khinkali, which are raviolis filled with spicy meat and vegetables. I also advise you to try Khachapuri which is a pastry that can be filled with cheese or egg. There are many other typical Georgian dishes! I recommend you to try them and make your own opinion about each one! ?
To go on an internship abroad in Tbilisi is to discover another culture
Georgians are really welcoming and have a sense of hospitality. They like to talk to each other, but the tone can quickly rise, don’t worry, it’s not necessarily a sign of disagreement or tension but simply that their conversation is animating them. When you meet someone for the first time, I advise you to shake their hand. On the other hand, if you have seen the same person several times, you can kiss them, whether they are male or female. Homosexuality is legal in Georgia but it can still be misunderstood by some Georgians. In restaurants or bars, it is considered good manners to leave a tip if the service has been satisfactory. It is not an obligation and is at the discretion of the person.
Going on an internship abroad in Tbilisi means going for long walks
In Tbilisi, you will be able to explore the city. You will quickly realise that the city centre is not very big but the advantage is that you can visit everything on foot! I also advise you to pass in front of the Holy Trinity church which is very beautiful and also the biggest church in Tbilisi. Once there, it will surely be one of the first things you will see, especially if you go around the city at night, but I still recommend you to go and see the Peace Bridge and its original shape. You can go to the ghost amusement park behind the TV tower (visible from the city centre). Clearly, if you go to Tbilisi for an internship, you’re in for a treat!
