5 must see monuments in Georgia
You probably plan to visit Georgian seaside city, Batumi this summer. If you are at the Black Sea coast of Georgia, do not miss a chance to observe “Ali and Nino”. “Ali and Nino” is a sculptural composition in Batumi overlooking the beaches of the Black Sea coast.

The monument is a symbol of true love – the statues, Ali and Nino are slowly moving towards each other for about ten
minutes until they turn into a single unit. The sculptor was inspired by a love story between a Muslim boy and a Georgian girl described in the novel “Ali and Nino” by Kurban Said.

Several years ago, the statues of citizens were installed on Baratashvili Bridge. The bridge connects old part of Tbilisi to the modern one. The sculptural humans are in motions, a boy and a girl kissing, a boy who is about to jump over the bridge, a girl sitting on a handrail, others running and standing still. The moving statues bring joy and harmony to the city.

The statue of a woman holds a bowl of wine in one hand and a sword in the other. A bowl of wine is a welcome gesture for Georgia’s friends and a sword is a response to its enemies. The monument overlooks much of the capital. You can reach the monument easily by a cable car.
