Kutaisi City

Kutaisi, one of the oldest cities globally, boasts a history spanning over 3500 years. According to the Byzantine historian Procopius Caesarea in the 6th century, Kutaisi was believed to be the residence of the King of Kolkheti - Ayet, known as "Aia-Kutaia." Old Kutaisi's vivid depiction can be found in the monumental epic poem "Argonautica" by the Greek poet and scientist Apollonius of Rhodes from the 3rd century BC. This poem serves as a literary reworking of the legendary Golden Fleece and the Argonauts' tales, which originated around the turn of the 14th and 13th centuries BC.

In the 21st century, Kutaisi transformed, earning recognition as a UNESCO City of Literature. This status presents an excellent opportunity to host new international literary festivals, and educational and research programs, and foster interdisciplinary cooperation to uphold the city's literary heritage. The establishment of the first royal printing house in 1800 marked a significant milestone in Kutaisi's cultural landscape. The Kutaisi Public Library, founded in 1873, stands as one of Georgia's oldest libraries.

Museums play a pivotal role in Kutaisi's cultural milieu, with the Kutaisi State Historical Museum housing a remarkable collection of over 230,000 exhibits and 40,000 books. Additionally, the city boasts five other museums and galleries.

Despite enduring numerous challenges throughout its history, Kutaisi has maintained its unique charm and character. Today, the city stands as a modern hub with well-developed infrastructure, public services, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, sports amenities, and lush gardens and parks. Kutaisi has rightfully earned its place on the world tourist map, inviting visitors to experience its rich cultural heritage and timeless allure.
