Streets of Batumi

The toponymy of Batumi is unique: instead of typical seaside names, most streets bear the names of famous personalities. You can walk along the streets of Gamsakhurdia, Queen Tamara, King Parnavaz, General Abashidze, as well as streets named after Lech and Maria Kaczynski and Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak al Nahyan.

Most of the streets associated with the Russian Empire and the Soviet period have been renamed. Examples include Dondukova-Korsakov Street, which became Konstantin Gamsakhurdia Street, and Suvorov Street, which was renamed in honor of Mamia Varshanidze. Streets named after Beria and Stalin also received new names.

Despite this, some streets associated with Russian culture have been preserved or re-emerged, such as Pushkin, Chkalov, Tchaikovsky, Yesenin, Mayakovsky and Ostrovsky streets. Mayakovsky, for example, was born in Georgia, and Yesenin spent time in Batumi, falling in love and creating many works.

Streets of Tbilisi

In 2022, Tbilisi went through a significant update of its toponymy, demonstrating respect for Georgian national history and culture. The renaming of streets and bridges reflects the city's desire to perpetuate the memory of prominent Georgian personalities. For example, the names of famous writers, musicians, art historians and architects were chosen. This decision highlights the importance of cultural heritage to Tbilisi's identity.

Examples include the renaming of a bridge in honor of the famous Georgian writer Guram Dochanashvili and a street in honor of the famous folklorist Anzor Erkomaishvili. Such changes not only pay tribute to significant figures in national history, but also contribute to the cultural enrichment of the urban space. The renaming of streets in Tbilisi serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving cultural heritage and the memory of people who made significant contributions to the development of Georgian culture and art.

Streets of Kutaisi

In Kutaisi, as in other cities of Georgia, street names reflect a complex historical heritage. Soviet names remain, such as Chekhov and Kantaria streets, but new ones also appear, reflecting modern Georgian history.

The historical center of Kutaisi demonstrates this layering: there is Lermontov Street, famous for its market with scales from the 1970s, and Tsereteli Street. The city also has streets dedicated to international connections and cultural diversity, such as Newport (sister city of Kutaisi) and Jerusalem (historic Jewish quarter), as well as Nizami Street, reflecting its proximity to Azerbaijan, and Pushkin Street with a museum.

Such a variety of street names in Kutaisi shows how historical and cultural heritage continues to shape the urban space, creating a unique combination of tradition and modernity.

    Сейчас во многих странах постсоветского пространства происходит переименование улиц и городов с уклоном на историческое культурное наследие.
    Большинство грузинских улиц носит название местных национальных героев, однако, мне отрадно видеть, что часть названий остались прежними. Здесь не забыты русские поэты и писатели: Пушкин, Маяковский, Чехов.
    Но следует понимать, что некоторые старожилы помнят прежние названия. Сколько не меняй таблички - историю не поменяешь.

    Я считаю история это важно, а переписывать историю мы не вправе. То же относится к названиям : городов , сел , улиц. Я думаю , что не стоит переименовывать , не мы их назвали , ни нам менять. Хочешь называть , что -то, сначала построй город, улицу или дом , и назови как ты хочешь.

    Многие в Батуми дают адреса на старые улицы, например, на улицу Ленина))

    Мне очень понравились названия улиц Грузии) Очень мудро на мой взгляд называть улицы именами известных личностей, так люди чтят память о них, ценят тот вклад в искусство, науку и культуру, что внесли эти знаменитости. Мне очень нравится то, как грузины уважают свои традиции и своих деятелей, их патриотизм и любовь к культуре родной страны не может не восхитить. И некоторые улицы названы именами русских деятелей, что неудивительно, ведь многие их них при жизни вдохновлялись красотами страны, а некоторые здесь даже похоронены.
