Tbilisi is the capital and the largest city of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Kura River with a population of approximately 1.5 million people. The cobblestoned old town reflects a long, complicated history, with periods under Persian and Russian rule. A beautiful city and a joy to do photography.

The Bridge of Peace is a bow-shaped pedestrian bridge over the Kura River in downtown Tbilisi, a steel and glass construction. It is very beautiful during night when  illuminated with numerous LEDs. Two more images of the bridge are below. Please click on an image to view a larger size.

Some more photos of the city are below. These are taken from Sololaki hill to get a bird’s eye view of the city.  The Hill overlooks the great city and also hold Narikala, a reconstructed 4th-century fortress, and Kartlis Deda, an iconic statue of the “Mother of Georgia.
