Lisi Lake in Tbilisi. Located in the northwest of the city, at an altitude of 615-730 meters above sea level. The surface area is about 0.47 sq. km. It is one of the most popular recreation areas, especially for locals. The territory of the lake is noted for the most interesting and diverse fauna in Tbilisi.
In winter, it’s almost empty. Most shops and bars are closed. Even though the lake is reachable the whole year, the real season starts in the middle of March and ends at the end of October.
The lake is a popular resting place for water sports and fishing lovers. Nearby is also A sulfur bath.

- Marshrutka (Minivans). Price: 1 GEL
- Taxi. The price depends on starting point and will be no more than 15-20 GEL
- By Car or Bike.
Just have a bottle of water with you, otherwise will stand at least half an hour in a long line to buy it.
If you are with kids, don’t forget to buy the snacks for them before, or will still clash with a long line of unhappy parents.
For a picnic choose the northern side of the lake. There is a small forest with a good view of a lake and some shadows.
If you are with kids be patient on walking and cycling paths. There is a chaotic movement. No one follows up the rules.
