The great thing about New Tiflis is that it is a pedestrian street and you can find peace there. The dry bridge is nearby, so after strolling you can cross the bridge and look for the hidden treasures at the flea market of old things.
Dry bridge offers a haphazard assortment of antiques, old personal items, tea sets, Stalin portraits, and expensive antiques. This place exists since 1990ies when people were forced to sell their belongings to make extra money. When I was young, I used to shop there for gifts and jewellery. However, nowadays, the dry bridge area is mainly attractive to tourists, who sift through all kinds of objects, carefully arranged on the tablecloths that are spread right on the sidewalk. Beware that it is a sort of a tourist trap – stuff is overpriced, so try to bargain.
Pass through the park behind the flea market to find local artists that proudly display their work. Here you may purchase a painting, hand-made souvenirs, high-quality felt products and other artisan items.
