Tbilisi State Medical University Hospital is one of the leading medical centers in the country, while private clinics are more likely to have English-speaking staff since they cater to expats as well.

Is Tbilisi safe for solo female travelers?

"I could not have felt safer in Tbilisi, even as a solo female traveler. Tbilisi has a relatively low crime rate compared to other European cities of similar size, and Georgians are known for their hospitality and friendliness. Morning and night both felt safe in Tbilisi, safer than many large cities in Canada or the US."
