About Sights – Heroes Memorial in Tbilisi
“Heroes Memorial” in Heroes Square (Georgian: გმირთა მოედანი) in Tbilisi honors all those who died protecting the territorial integrity of Georgia.
Erected in 2009, the memorial is 51 meters high and comprises 16 segments faced with marble.
The names of the Georgian military pupils that died in fighting against the Red Army in 1921, the leaders of an anti-Soviet revolt of 1924 and those that died during military actions in Abkhazia in 1992-1993 and in the ‘five-day war’ in South Ossetia in August 2008 are etched on the marble – altogether some 4 000 names.
How to get there? The memorial is located in Heroes Square, near Tbilisi Zoo.
