The Boulevard

The Boulevard – that’s how locals call the central park in Kutaisi, located next to the fountain with Colchis animals. At the beginning of 19th century there was an orchard in this place, which belonged to Princess Darejan, daughter of King of Imereti Solomon I. In 1820 Darejan handed it over to the city council and since then the place became very popular among Kutaisi citizens. The construction of the urban park began in 1840. It was designed in a square shape, surrounded by a red fence, with tree alleys forming a shape of a cross. There was a pond in the middle of the park. Side alleys were used during artistic and cultural events, there was a café in the brick building in the corner and walking path around the park. The boulevard wasn’t only a place for fun and entertainment it soon started to be an important social gathering spot.

The Fountain - Agmashenebeli Square

Golden figures in shapes of horses, rams, tigers and other animals featured on the fountain in the centre of Kutaisi surprise everyone who visits the city for the first time. Among the animals you will see a figure of tamada (toast-maker during Georgian feast), greeting guests with a horn of wine in his hand. Many people take photos of the fountain and move on without even thinking why it was decorated in that way. Sometimes you can hear somebody saying that it’s another Georgian fantasy and not many people know that the statues are important symbols of Georgia. They are much enlarged versions of tiny figures made of gold and bronze which were found at archaeological diggings all over the country.
