A huge curving stone-plated concrete structure, Russian Georgian Friendship Monument was built in 1983 to commemorate the bicentennial of the Treaty of Georgievsk, which put Georgia under Russian protectorate. On the inside of the round concrete wall, you'll find an impressive mosaic mural painted in vivid colors, depicting scenes from Russian and Georgian history. A round terrace offers an almost 360-degree view of the snowcapped surroundings.
