Vazha-Pshavela Monument Tbilisi – In sync with nature

Vazha-Pshavela was a famous Georgian writer, who created pieces of literature that enriched the already rich language with descriptions of flora and fauna.

One of Georgia’s treasures is undoubtedly literature and poetry. Georgian language alone is full of words and wordings and forms of verbs that are sometimes difficult to translate. And to interpret a poet’s thoughts, a poet with a mindset in synchrony with nature is indeed a mission impossible. 

Vazha-Pshavela (real name Luka Razikashvili 1861-1915) was a famous Georgian writer, who created pieces of literature that enriched the already rich language with descriptions of flora and fauna that make you think that this man was truly in sync with nature. Well, an avenue with about ten car lanes in total is a far cry from a weeping fawn, but a single lane right in the middle dedicated exclusively to trees and pet owners is the closest thing to the wilderness that the middle of the capital can offer. 

This is where the statue of Vazha-Lshavela is erected, on the avenue named after him, at the tip of a park protruding in the midst of racing BMWs. With one hand stretched to the side, the legendary poet personally welcomes you to the district. You might as well immerse yourself in one of his poems and imagine that he’s transmitting the stories of all the churning birds around you.
