General Information

Friendship Monument, Gudauri, Georgia, 2013.

This monument to Russian-Georgian Friendship, lonely and rundown, towers above the military highway, a feat of engineering at the time of its construction, sometime between 1799 and 1817. The road was necessary for the Russians to conquer the Caucasus. It also made it easier for the Russians to protect the Georgians against the Ottoman and Persian empires, but consequently the Georgians forfeited their independence.
