Founded 1,400 years before the birth of Christ, Kutaisi is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is a place of exceptional warmth, humour, and love.
With such a long and storied history, it should be no surprise that many of Kutaisi’s most prominent attractions are connected to its past. Chief amongst these is the relatively “new” (by Kutaisi’s standards) garden-boulevard that leads to the city’s central square. The great Georgian poet Akaki Tsereteli, called the 150-year-old boulevard, “the Parliament of Kutaisi” due to the fact that the city’s intelligentsia would gather there to discuss important issues. This tradition persists to this day.In the square, you’ll find the Colchis fountain decorated with representations of the thirty golden artifact figures found during the Vani excavations.
