Page 8 Tbilisi

Location: Tbilisi, Georgia

The rest of the Old Town

One of the narrow streets neighbouring the church where vines are grown along the wires to camouflage them.

The interior of the Eastern Orthodox St Mary's Church. St Mary is very important to the Georgians as she was the apostle chosen to bring Christianity to this area after the crucifixion. The churches in Georgia are highly decorated with icons and frescoes with the altar kept sacred behind a closed screen. This is totally different to the churches in Armenia which have bare stone inside with just a few carvings and an open altar. The interior of these are just a space for worship but still very beautiful in their simplicity.

Showing the glass mesh of the Peace Bridge

The pedestrian Peace Bridge with an example of overhanging house which are features of this area particularly along the river.

At night the city is a magical fairyland with lots of coloured lights.

The Presidents palace and the Gold Church, with the Japanese designed Events Hall in front.

We took a ride on the funicular Railway to Matsminda Park which is in fact a theme park but it also has a restaurant where we dined on a terrace overlooking the city at night.

Liberty Square also showing the Parliament Building

Photographs of victims.The Red Terror room in the National Museum, where we found expositions of the systematic extermination of the noble families and dynasties between 1920 and 1923.

The Gold Church is the most prominent landmark at night.
