Kartlis Deda statue was erected on the top of Sololaki hill in 1958, the year Tbilisi celebrated its 1500th anniversary. Prominent Georgian sculptor Elguja Amashukeli designed the twenty-metre aluminium figure of a woman in Georgian national dress. She symbolizes the Georgian national character: in her left hand she holds a bowl of wine to greet those who come as friends, and in her right hand is a sword for those who come as enemies.

Awesome place with the panoramic view of Tbilisi. Great to get here in the evening, so the city is lighted

Love that she has a bowl (representing wine) in one hand and a sword in the other. Truly symbolic of the Georgian character

Beautiful place, you can go there by cable car but there is nothing up there one the mother of Georgia. It's good place to take pictures and you can find some talent people up there with great shows. You can take good pictures of the city and it will be nice at night too. Need to visit

You can use the cable car to climb. The city view from the top is very beautiful. After that, walk to other places.

Beautiful place, friendly people and cheap food. It's best not to go in the winter though because the icy cold weather ruined our walks around the area. I went with friends and I'm not Christian but I found out some really interesting facts from talking to the local people. We didn't pay for a guide. We did our own research and experienced it ourselves. Will go back again just to see the beauty of it.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
