::: Tbilisi, Capital of Republic of Georgia :::



Georgia located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. The country covers a territory of 69,700 km² and its population is almost 4.7 million. During the classical era independent kingdoms became established in what is now Georgia. The kingdoms of Colchis and Iberia adopted Christianity in the early 4th century.
In 1921, become the part of the Soviet Union. After independence in 1991, post-communist Georgia suffered from civil unrest and economic crisis, as well as most recently in 2008, a full-scale war with Russia.
After the Rose Revolution of 2003, the new government of Georgia undertook a number of profound institutional reforms aimed at modernizing the economy and improving business climate. Average monthly salary rose from $59 in 2003 to $360 in 2011.(in more than 6 times)

Ethnic Georgians call themselves Kartvelebi, their land Sakartvelo. The terms "Georgia" and "Georgian" appeared in Western Europe in numerous early medieval annals.

Tbilisi is the capital and the largest city of Georgia.
Founded in the 5th century by Vakhtang Gorgasali , the monarch of Georgia's precursor Kingdom of Iberia , Tbilisi has served, with various intervals, as Georgia's capital for nearly 1500 years and represents a significant industrial, social, and cultural center of the country. From 12–13th centuries, Tbilisi became a dominant regional power with a thriving economy (with well-developed trade and skilled labour) and a well-established social system/structure. This period is often referred to as "Georgia's Golden Age" or the Georgian Renaissance . In 1236, Georgia came under Mongol domination. Georgian King Erekle II tried on several occasions, successfully, to free Tbilisi from foreign invaders but in the end Tbilisi was burnt to the ground in 1795 by Shah Agha-Mohammad Khan.
From the beginning of the 19th century Tbilisi started to grow economically and politically. New buildings mainly of European style were erected throughout the town. Tbilisi once again emerged as a major trade and a cultural center.
On 25 February 1921, the Bolshevist Russian 11th Red Army invaded Tbilisi after bitter fighting at the outskirts of the city and declared Soviet rule. Since the break-up of the Soviet Union , Tbilisi has experienced periods of significant instability and became the scene of frequent armed confrontations. Many segments of society became impoverished because of unemployment caused by the crumbling economy. After the Rose Revolution in 2003, Tbilisi has experienced considerably more stability with an improved economy and a real estate boom.

Tbilisi's varied history is reflected in its architecture, which is a mix of medieval , classical , and Soviet structures .

The city covers an area of 726 km 2 (280 sq mi) and has 1,152,500 inhabitants. Around 89% of the population is ethnically Georgian. More than 95% of the residents of Tbilisi practise various forms of Christianity. A large minority of the population (around 4%) practises Islam.
The name 'Tbili' or 'Tbilisi' ('warm location') was therefore given to the city because of the area's numerous sulphuric hot springs that came out of the ground.

well i look at it this way...The pictures are beautiful, of beautiful places and such. Every country has its good and bad. Like every city there's always a rich place and the rest....i agree these pictures are bias, however, you can't ignore to admit that at least what you saw in these pictures is great.
