Georgians Celebrate Independence Day in Tbilisi
Georgia has been celebrating Independence Day. In Tbilisi, there was a carnival atmosphere mixing a variety of sporting events for children with attractions such as music, dancing, and street art. The events mark the anniversary of the day in 1918 when Georgia declared its short-lived independence from Moscow, after the Russian Revolution. Georgia re-established its statehood after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
