Tradition meets innovation. Since October 2012, it has once again been possible to take a funicular ride to the top of Mount Mtatsminda and enjoy the superb views of Tbilisi. The new cabins are fitted with 18 seats and provide room for 60 people. The vehicles are accompanied by a driver. Virtually everything is new except for the track and infrastructure. The station buildings have been refurbished in the fin-de-siècle architectural style. As the cabins could not be transported around or over the terminal buildings, an unusual solution was adopted. Auxiliary rails were laid through the generously proportioned entrance hall. The cabins were then deposited in front of the building and pulled through the wide doors to their ultimate location using rope winches.
