One of the oldest neighborhood of Tbilisi; Vere, used to be a village outside of the city. It took its name from a Vere river, which flows through Varazi valley to Mtkvari river. There was an important trade route, which was protected by special guard. XII-XIII centuries Church of Saint Andrew; commonly referred to as Blue Monastery, is still standing in Vere Park.
Today Vere is one of the central neighborhoods of Tbilisi. It has it all; shopping, recreation, relax and venues of cultural events. Vere is considered to be an artsy part of Tbilisi. There you can find: Tbilisi Concert Hall, Pantomime Theater and street artists of Zemeli. Then, there is “Perovsaya”; the street of bars, restaurant and cafes, with live music and delicious cuisine.
