German Settlements

German Settlements

Although Georgian-German relations began in the Middle Ages, it is important to underline the significant role of Germans in our recent history, in particular in science, research and the development of the country. The German cultural heritage of Georgia is particularly visible in both the urban German architecture in Tbilisi and the rural architecture in the traditional German settlements. In Tbilisi, the local German architects Leopold Bielfeld, Johann Dizmann, Albert Salzmann, Viktor Schröter, Otto Jakob Simonson and Paul Stern have designed remarkable buildings. In the settlements, dwelling houses are an organic mixture of Swabian and Georgian traditions.

The certified Route of German Settlements and Architectural Heritage in Georgia aims to promote, preserve, protect and sustain the development of the German settlements in Georgia.
