Images of Georgia: Three Cities
Tbilisi, Mtskheta and Kutaisi are three of the most important cities of the country of Georgia. Tbilisi is the present capital of Georgia, its name is derived from the presence of hot springs which its famous ruler, King Vakhtang I Gorgasali came to love. Mtskheta, on the other hand, is Georgia’s old capital and one of its oldest cities containing some of its most important historical monuments. Finally, Kutaisi is Georgia’s second largest city and has recently become the parliamentary capital of the country. Kutaisi also boasts of several UNESCO Heritage Sites.
I had the privilege of visiting and taking photos of these three cities, the results of which were featured in several posts in February this year. Below are some of the images I captured of these 3 important cities of Georgia.
