Tbilisi cable track station
An abandoned cable track station in Georgia. We visited it during our trip in May 2019.
The Academy of Sciences building at the top of Rustaveli Avenue, designed by Konstantine Chkheidze and Mikheil Chkhikvadze is a typical example of post-war Soviet monumental architecture.
The recent removal of the red star atop the 55 metre high tower makes little difference to its distinctive totalitarian character.
The nearby lower Station of the Mtatsminda cableway is set in the Academy’s backyard and is part of the building complex.
