Kutaisi – must-see sights

The exact date of the origin of the city of Kutaisi is unknown, but one thing is clear - it is quite ancient: archaeologists found the remains of ancient people and dinosaurs when they excavated around the city. Kutaisi is not a tourist city, but it also has a lot of interesting things, which we will now consider.

1. White Bridge

The city is divided into two parts by the river Rioni. The two "halves" of the city are united by several bridges, but the White Bridge is most striking. It is wooden and, it would seem, that it has nothing special. But the view that opens from the bridge to the river is spectacular.
