Tbilisi, Peace Bridge

Tbilisi, Peace Bridge

Large-scale urban architectural changes have been gradually implemented in Georgia since 2003. One of the most prominent projects in this regard was a modern pedestrian bridge called "Peace Bridge," which stretches over the Mtkvari River in the historical district of Tbilisi.

The History of the Building

The bridge connects Erekle II Street and Rike Park and was built in 2010 by the Italian designer and architect Michele De Luca.

People often refer to the bridge as the "Glass Bridge" since it is entirely covered in blue glass panels that are mounted within a metal frame. Meanwhile, a 50,000-lamp lighting system, designed by Philippe Martineau, beautifully illuminates the bridge at night.

The bridge today

Soon after its construction, the bridge became a popular sight and is almost always busy with tourists and locals alike. While standing on the bridge, you can have a beautiful view at the historical part of Tbilisi and its surroundings, spread out across the banks of the Mtkvari River.
