If you ever find yourself in the seaside town of Batumi, Georgie and are feeling romantically inclined, be sure to visit the monument of Ali and Nino.

Based on the story by Kurban Said, the glorious statues depict a romantic affair between a Muslim boy, Ali, and Georgian princess, Nino. Coming from different cultural and religious backgrounds, these lovebirds face many struggles in their path, only to find themselves separated for eternity by the invasion of Soviet Russia.

The story was first published in 1937 and has been translated into numerous languages and adored throughout the world, but nothing compares to the moving themes these monuments represent.

  Created by Tamara Kvesitadze, the 23-foot-tall sculpture was dubbed the ‘Statue of Love’.
