Photographer's Note

Rustaveli Avenue is an avenue located in the center of Tbilisi named in honor of the medieval Georgian poet Shot Rustaveli. The avenue begins at Liberty Square and runs for about 1.5 kilometers before joining an extension of Kostava Street.

Rustaveli Avenue is considered the most important road artery in Tbilisi due to its large number of government, public, cultural and business buildings that are located along the avenue. The Parliament of Georgia, the Kashveti Church, the National Museum of Georgia, the Paliashvili Opera, the Rustaveli State Theater Academy, the Georgian Academy of Sciences and the Tbilisi Art Gallery, among others, are all located in Rustavelis Gamziri.

In 1989, hundreds of thousands of Georgians gathered in front of the Government Palace on Rustaveli Avenue. A crackdown by the Soviet military killed many protesters in the April 9 Tragedy.
