Tbilisi’s Gold Market

Georgia has long been known for it’s gold… Thousands of years ago, Jason came all the way from Greece to find the famous golden fleece in the land of Colchis, now western Georgia, known for its gold mines.

The other day, I visited Georgia’s current ‘Gold Market’… a place full of people, noise and surprises. The vendor’s never ending stalls display all sorts of jewellery and other precious bits and pieces, that they sell and make… I would have liked to speak more Georgian to understand where all of these things come and go!
