Photographer's Note

On the left bank of the Mtkvari River (also known as the Kura River), the former "Imperial Gendarmerie" building was completely renovated to house the new Georgian Presidential Palace. Italian architect Michele De Lucchi's project of the "Bridge of Peace" was completed in 2009 and includes an impressive transparent dome made of curved glass, designed by architects Vakhtang Zesashvili (Georgian) and Franc Zagari (Italian). This is the main office of the President of Georgia and stands out on the Tbilisi skyline.

Perched on a hill, the imposing building dominates the left bank of the Kura River. The symmetrical building has a Greek colonnade that supports a pediment at the central entrance and a colonnade at each of the two front corners.
