Georgian Architecture

Georgia's ancient culture is evidenced in a large number of architectural monuments, including lots of monasteries and churches. In fact, Georgian architecture (along with Armenian influences) played a significant role in Byzantine-style development.

Georgia's architecture ranges from post-modern high-rises to art nouveau residences, Indo-Islamic theatres, Soviet modernist monuments and public works, Christian Orthodox churches, and Ottoman mosque complexes. Tbilisi's architecture is a microcosm of complex cultural forces that have been practised in Georgia throughout its long history, right up to the present day.
