Day 5. Wednesday Soviet architecture in Rustavi/ car bazaar/ studio visit

Rustavi was built in 1948 on Stalin’s orders as an industrial center for steelworks and various chemical conglomerates for about 150,000 people. The first buildings were built by German prisoners of war and later “normal” prisoners were used in addition to ordinary construction brigades. The young construction workers mainly came from western Georgia and were attracted by high salaries and low-cost housing. After a complete breakdown in the 1990s, the city is now on the road to recovery. Last but not least, the construction of the largest car bazaar in the Caucasus, the boom in the construction industry and the construction of a highway from Tbilisi to Azerbaijan contributed to this. We will as well visit an artist’s studio and take a walk through an extremely complex and interesting city.
