6th BSEC Month of Culture
1-30 November 2022
We take a stroll at the Tsinandali Estate Garden, the first European-type recreation zone in Georgia, situated in the area of Kakheti. The Tsinandali Estate was built by Prince Alexander Chavchavadze, the founder of Georgian romanticism, who inherited it from his father and turned it into the cultural and intellectual center of the country.
Its unique garden was laid out by the landscape architects Chavchavadze invited from Europe. Soon it became well-known throughout the Caucasus region as visitors compared it to the Kew and Richmond gardens. In Tsinandali Park, there are more than 1500 species of trees, shrubs and bushes, annuals and perennials from every continent. Today, it represents a mixture of wild parks and well cultured French style gardens.
Apart from the famous garden, the Tsinandali complex embraces the memorial house, a wine cellar, a hotel, a café and the historical winery- where the wine was first bottled in Georgia. Today, the Estate is open to public and visitors can easily observe many different styles, such as romanticism, industrialism and soviet monumentalism, due to the changes throughout the centuries.
