I'm planning on a rail trip around Europe. I don't have much information on how I can get to T'Bilisi by train. Could anyone give me some piece of info?
I would like to know from where can I go into Georgia by train and if there's any info on the Internet about the georgian rail network and schedules.

Thanx Reply to this

hi Jose
I'm sure you will have a nice trip!
To Georgia by train you can get either from Azerbaijan or from Armenia, two border countries to the south from Georgia.
I guess you will enter Georgia either from Ukraine or from Turkey, unfortunately you will not be able to use train in this case, suggest to take bus from Turkey (leaves quite frequently from Istanbul or Ankara) and ferry from ILYICHEVSK (Ukraine) - POTI/BATUMI (Georgia), deffinitely suggest to go to Batumi than to foti http://www.ukrferry.com/eng/services/ferry.asp
for the railway, you will be able easily move within Georgia, or visit its border countries Armenia and Azerbaijan, here is website, hope you will find needed info in English, anyway you will not have problems in getting tickets directly at the stations, its not expensive
