Description

Postcards presented in the album are kept in I.Grishashvili Museum of Tbilisi History (Karvasla). Postcards published just a century ago illustrate Tbilisi under the rule of Tsarist Russia – the time, when Georgian statehood was destroyed, kings were dethroned and the dynasty was almost entirely exiled to Russia.
However, the formation of Tbilisi as a European city is also related to this period.
Layout of old districts, ruins of citadel, several fragments of fortress walls and churches are all that remains from feudal-era Tiflis. Tiflis was renamed to Tbilisi only in the 1930’s.

This is a photo-story of Tiflis. This type of city does not exist any longer. It exists only on these postcards like a sorrowful memory about the past.
