Landmark Tourist Spot
Kartlis Deda is a monument in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.The statue was erected on the top of Sololaki hill in 1958, the year Tbilisi celebrated its 1500th anniversary. Prominent Georgian sculptor Elguja Amashukeli designed the twenty-metre aluminium figure of a woman in Georgian national dress. She symbolizes the Georgian national character: in her left hand she holds a bowl of wine to greet those who come as friends, and in her right hand is a sword for those who come as enemies. thumb

  • We enjoyed the walk up there. Even though it was very hot, and the signs of staren was bad. The statue is impressive by virtue of its size and tells well something about a different culture than our own. A Viking chieftain or King Christian IV at 40 metres above sea level at the top on himmelbjerget is well a utænkelighed? Prospect heroppefra downward Tbilisi is very nice. We gave ourselves to look for the entrance to the Fort, but there aren't any entrance. Also not a real fort, only some murrester, as it is not completely harmless to crawl around on. The statue is not stones, but riveted metal plates. Therefore, nicknamed "Tin mutter".

Where to stay in Tbilisi

Strung out alongside the Mtkvari River, Tbilisi's historical core and bustling city center offers an array of accommodation options. Choose the fortress hill, the more northern residential districts, or a main street in the center of the action. Large international chain hotels offer luxury options, complete with fine dining, air conditioning, and more. However, you can also choose from more economical, mid-level options located around Rustaveli Avenue and Tbilisi's old town. For the lowest cost, consider one of the ubiquitous hostels.
