Europe Square

As the connecting point of Wine Ascent, Metekhi Downhill Street, Rike Park, Metekhi Bridge, and a driveway tunnel, Europe Square stands as an engaging hub in the historical district of Tbilisi. This formerly river-island transformed into an urban square is teeming with attractions, including a playground for children, the lower station of the Aerial cable car, the Mtkvari River Ferry station, and the iconic restaurant Rike.

The square also proudly hosts a larger-than-life flower watch and a statue of the renowned Georgian composer Davit Sarajishvili. Each attraction contributes to the cultural fabric of the square, enticing visitors to immerse themselves in the city's rich history.

During a visit to Germany in June 2017, the Georgian Prime Minister received a piece of the Berlin Wall. Today, this piece stands in Europe Square as a potent symbol of Georgian-German friendship. As Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili eloquently stated, this remarkable artifact serves to remind us that "all walls of evil will break one day."

Nestled in the southern part of Rike, between Metekhi and Wine Ascent, Europe Square is surrounded by popular sights such as the Metekhi Temple, Darejan Palace, and characteristic architecture of old Tbilisi. The striking modern architecture of the Peace Bridge and Rike Park, offering opportunities for relaxation and recreation, contrast beautifully with the area's historic charm. For those seeking higher vistas, the Narikala cable car provides a thrilling ride with breathtaking views of the city.

Crossing the Metekhi Bridge, one is greeted with the inviting ambiance of Meidan, with its abundant sights including Abanotubani, the Blue Mosque, and other gems of Old Tbilisi. Proximity to the Tbilisi History Museum further enriches the cultural offerings around Europe Square.

A vibrant array of cafes, bars, restaurants, and hotels surround the square, offering visitors an opportunity to experience the distinct flavors of Georgian cuisine. As a popular tourist destination, Europe Square is a melting pot where people of various nationalities come together, fostering a sense of peace, friendship, and cultural harmony. Its vibrant scenery, adorned with colorful carpets and intricately carved balconies, make Europe Square a hub of endless fascination and allure.
