The 130 meter Alphabet Tower in Miracle Park combines the structural design of DNA, in its familiar double helix pattern, and the language of Georgia, with each rung on the ladder of the double helix displaying an individual letter of the Georgian alphabet. All 33 letters of the Georgian alphabet are represented on the tower.

The 25-meter clock tower in Miracle Park is widely known as ‘Chacha Tower’. Chacha (Georgian: ჭაჭა) is a strong spirit made of the grape residue (pomace) left after making wine. Every day at 7 pm, the tower dispenses chacha from four stations for ten minutes!

The Statue of Love (Georgian: სიყვარულის ქანდაკება) in Miracle Park is a 7 meter steel sculpture of a man and a woman created by Georgian artist Tamar Kvesitadze (Georgian: თამარ კვესიტაძე).

The sculpture was inspired by the love story of “Ali and Nino” (Georgian: ალი და ნინო) by Kurban Said. The story is similar to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and tells of an Azerbaijani youth who falls in love with a Georgian princess and dies defending his country.
