About Sights – The Bridge of Peace at Night

The wavy steel and glass canopy of the Bridge of Peace (Georgian: მშვიდობის ხიდი) pedestrian bridge that spans the Mtkvari River in Tbilisi is fitted with thousands of LED lights that are switched on 90 minutes before sunset, illuminating the river and the buildings on both banks.
