I was walking around the city. It was an incredible adventure!
People of different nationalities have always lived in Tbilisi. Georgians, Armenians, Jews. They had a mutual cultural influence and formed a unique community in Tbilisi. Sayat Nova, a songwriter of Armenian origin, lived and worked in this city. His songs are imbued with lyrics and love.
Sololaki quarter is one of the most prestigious in Tbilisi. Its name comes from sulula - an Arabic word for an irrigation canal. The Arabs dug the irrigation canal during their rule in Tbilisi.
The self-name of Georgians is Kartli. A massive sculpture of the motherland of the Cartvels' mother was erected during the Soviet era. A woman holds a sword in one hand to defeat enemies, and on the other hand, has a kvevi - a Georgian national wine glass to treat friends.
Disputes between different historians and people about who built the fortress do not stop. Some claim that the Turks made the fort at the dawn of their civilization. This conclusion can be drawn from its name. Narik is tall, and Kale is a fortress.
Metekhi is the heart of Georgian statehood and the capital. Vakhtang Gorgosali moved the capital from Mtskheta to Tbilisi. Metekhi - a steep rock above the Kura River became the site of the royal palace and church.
Gorgasali is the nickname of King Vakhtang. Gorgi is said to mean wolves in Persian. This is how the Persians called the warriors of Grgosali. This is where the name Georgi comes from, where the country name Georgia comes from.
