The Chronicle of Georgia (or History Memorial of Georgia) is a monument located near the Tbilisi Sea. It was created by Zurab Tsereteli in 1985 but was never fully finished. The monument chronicles the history of Georgia. The monument sits at the top of a large set of stairs. 16 pillars are between 30–35 meters tall and the top half features kings, queens, and heroes while the bottom part depicts stories from the life of Christ. There is also a grapevine cross of St. Nino and a chapel.
Here are large sets of steps on the way to the monument. Here people can overlook the whole of Tbilisi. It’s a good choice for tourists to visit here.
