Mshvidobis Khidi

Opened in 2010, the Bridge of Peace (Mshvidobis Khidi) stretches 150 metres across the river Mtkvari, connecting the old town of Tbilisi with Rike Park. The curved and sweeping steel and glass design was designed by the Italian architect Michele De Lucchi.

The bridge was built in Italy and then transported to Tbilisi with a total of 200 trucks. The bridge is particularly worth seeing at night, when the 1,208 LED lamps from French designer Philippe Martinaud installed in the roof of the bridge create a spectacular play of colours.

Opinions on the Bridge of Peace differ

The bridge is controversial among locals as well as tourists. Some like it, others don't; and still others find that the bridge has its charm, but doesn't fit into the cityscape, as it leads directly to the historical old town.
