Located on a hill, the imposing building dominates the left bank of the Kura river. The symmetical building has a greek colonnade supporting a pediment at the central entrance and a colonnade at each of the two front corners. In the center of the building is a transparent dome made of curved glass.

On the left bank of the Mtkvari River (also known as Kura River), the old "Imperial Gendarmerie" building was completely renovated to house Georgia's new Presidential Palace. The project by Italian architect Michele De Lucchi - the same of the "Bridge of Peace" - was finished in 2009, and includes an awesome glass-dome designed by architects Vakhtang Zesashvili (Georgian) and Franc Zagari (Italian). This is the main office of the President of Georgia and outstands on Tbilisi skyline! Enjoy!

The palace is located in such a place that it can be seen from many points of the city. It should be above the Mtkvari river. Palace dominates the city - the president has to see everything and everyone. But seriously, unremarkable in terms of architecture, the building is quite rigorous and modern.

This is the main presidential palace of Georgia, a modern palace with a beautiful glass dome overlooking the Mtkvari river. Magnificent design for an Italian architect.

The Presidential Palace in Tbilisi is set on the eastern Mtkvari river bank on a lower part of the hill atop which stands the huge Holy Trinity Cathedral. We tried to visit it while walking down from the Cathedral, but it's closed to visitors and encircled with big walls and guards.
The palace is best seen from the other side of the river, and it without a doubt reminds on German Reichstag in Berlin with its glass cupola in the middle and Greek columns.

This is review is quite late. I just finished visiting the Tsminda Sameba Cathedral and was trying to figure out how to return to the Old Town by foot so I explored the alleys downhill. I saw the Presidential Palace along the way but couldn't take photos.

The presidential palace is really a palace and a magnificent structure. It is located on a higher ground so is visible from everywhere. Structure itself is good with some nice architecture.

We cannot go inside but can see it from its outside its walls and can actually go quite near it but I wouldn't recommend it because the front side of palace is facing river so you can only see the side when near it. The best place to view the palace and take pictures is the peace bridge.

Our B & B was right next to this place, so each day we saw the side of the Palace. Up close it was well maintained, and we always greeted the guards as we walked past. From across the river you have great views to look up on the hill and see this large building. It was also very well illuminated at night.

Palace exterior can be better seen from the Peace bridge but if you wish to have a closer look it is a short 10-15 minute walk up to the palace from the old town / Rike park.
Obviously the palace is heavily guarded and protected by high fences. You can take a quick peek from the front gates.

Instead of going back to the Avlabari Metro Station where I came from to visit the Cathedral, I just walked down to the Old Town. On the way down, I saw a security Guard and asked for direction about walking back to the Freedom Square. I also asked him about the building that he is guarding.

I was quite surprised to learn that it is the Presidential Palace. He was the only guard present at this encounter and there is no barricade at all, very unlike what we have at the White House in Washington, DC.

It is not open to the public so I just took a couple of pictures of this building and walked away.
