The statue of King Vakhtang Gorgasali, or Gorgosal (Wolfhead) since he wore a Wolf helmet and came to be associated with a Wolf. Worth a visit!

This statue is located downtown Tbilisi. It overlooks the river, the fortress and the old town. To have a look at it one should just walk across the bridge from the Sherdeni street and could got a snapshot of the monument.

Vakhtang I Gorgasali is important for Georgia, considered as a founder of Tbilisi, so you can't neglect seeing this statue and finding several streets name after him in Georgia. Exact timing of his life and rule is not clear, differing couple years, but we can say approx 500 AD. His statue is located next to Metekhi Church by Metekhi Bridge.... More

The Monument of King Vakhtang Gorgasai is strategically located on top of a hill overlooking the Old Town. I passed by this attraction on my way to the Sulfur Bath area.

While the monument itself is worth a look because of the association between the King and the founding of Tbilisi, it's the view that really drives people to visit this spot. From up here, you can see the Old Town almost in its entirety, and on a clear day it's great for some spectacular photos.

The monument is an average monument but the way it is positioned at the entry of the Old Town is what makes this delightful.

The monument and the square around it offer some nice evening view of Tbilisi, Narikala Fortress, Old Town... Too bad they close it after 8 pm.
