Independence Day in Tbilisi

On 26th May 2016 the annual celebration of the Georgian Independence Day took place. This date marks the foundation of the Democratic Republic of Georgia which was founded on 26th May 1918 after the collapse of the Russian Empire. The new funded state existed only until spring 1921 when it was invaded by the Red Army and integrated into the Soviet Union.

Today 26th May is a national holiday in Georgia. Beneath are pictures from the celebrations in 2016 on the Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi.
