Dry Bridge flea market
The flea market is located on, below and next to the centrally located bridge that connects Dedaena Park with Saarbrücken Square on the other side of Mtkvari. The flea market can be reached on foot. It is 10 minutes from the Opera House and 20 minutes from the Old Town.
Jewellery, spare parts and Stalin
At the Dry Bridge flea market you can buy almost everything. There are knives next to the books, silver jewellery next to old household appliances. Porcelain cups and plates stand next to old typewriters and cameras. From the golden, 30 cm tall statue of Josef Stalin to the spare part for a mobile phone from the nineties, you can find almost anything that is useful or useless at the flea market.
Craftsmanship from Georgia and beautiful jewellery can be found at the Dry Bridge market as well as all kinds of scrap metal. A highlight for tourists are the traders who spread a potpuri of relics of the Soviet Union on their cloths. Military badges, awards of the Communist Party and all kinds of pins, flags and pictures can be admired.
Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The flea market at the Dry Bridge is not to be overlooked: The numerous traders lay out their goods on large cloths on the floor. Originally, all traders were locals who simply sold all sorts of things that they could no longer use at home to generate a small additional income. Today it is the main occupation for many traders.
If the weather is right, the flea market is open every day from 10:00 to 17:00 o'clock. At the weekend the selection is largest. But then the most visitors are there.
