Mikheil Saakashvili was an initiator of the great innovative project that changed the city face. He developed the close vicinity to the Bridge of Peace, the park on the left bank of Kura River. Undoubtedly all the modern beauty and the capital outlook of the city belonged to him. This bridge adorns Tbilisi. Saakashvili also builds the building with a blue dome on the top of the cliff. It was designed as the presidential palace — something like the White House. The equestrian statue in front of the Metech monastery near Avlabar is Vakhtang Gorgosali. The legend of the creation of Tbilisi is associated with his name. He moved the capital here from McKhet. The Soviet authorities presented Tbilisi with a sculpture of a woman on the 1500th anniversary of the city. She holds a quevi and a sword in her hand. It was named Mother Georgia, like other megalomaniac sculptures of the motherland in Kyiv or Stalingrad. Mother Georgia stands on a high cliff on the right bank of Kura River. Quevi in her hand symbolizes friendship, and sword symbolizes defensive. She towers over the old town near the fortress of Narikala.
