Located in the beautiful Miracle park, the monument is inspired by the local legend of Ali, an Azerbaijani youth who falls in love with Nino, a Georgian princess. As with all tragedies, there is no happily ever after and Ali gets killed in a war.

The monument comprises two statues made of metal plates. The statues are mounted on moving pedestals and the metal plates have gaps in between. This enables the two statues to actually cross each other giving the impression that the lovers are meeting together and then separating again.

The monument is beautiful and unique in its concept in that it blends art with engineering. As with all structures in the park, it is lit up beautifully at night making it a great photo spot.

Visited this monument today. Very impressive from various angles. The mechanism that moves both figures wasn’t working but that did not detract from its beauty. Great to admire with nice seating nearby. Great views of the sea and the port from this area.

One of the most interesting monuments that I see... It's a mechanical system, a statue about love were Ali and Nino merge into each other! Just love it. It takes 10 min to complete the merge without touching. In he novel that inspired this amazing art Ali and Nino ended up separated by Soviet war. It's a ode to love! The author of the statue isTamar Kvesitadze.

This was a nice and interesting monument dedicated to the love and friendship between Christians and Muslims. This made for a nice backdrop for photo taking which we took full advantage up. I really appreciated this monument and technical design.

Two metallic long statues, made of rings, represent a young Muslim Azerbaijani man his name was Ali and a Georgian Christian woman her name was Nino they loved each other but they didnt married because of their different societies. Both statues move changing their position every 10 minutes, until they combine and become one.(The idea based on a novel by an Azerbaijani author using the pseudonym Kurban.)

The monument represents figures of a man and a woman moving in circles for about 8-10 minutes and eventually passing through each other, forming one whole body for several second. The monument was inspired by a novel called Ali and Nino, written by Azerbaijani author, Kurban Said.

This monument is located in a geat area by the sea in batumi near to the alphabet tower too!!! Great atmosphere and lights around it... You can see the lights' reflection on the statues... The statues moves slowly they first separate from each other and then after a ride they come to each others and merge and become one!!! Very touching story of love of Ali and Nino... It is highly recommended!!!

Visiting Ali and Nino was the most important thing to do while visiting Batumi. It is located in a gorgeous place by the sea and there are many things to do there.
Ali and Nino is an 8-meter-long steel statue (26 feet) of Tamara Kvesetadz, a Georgian sculptor. Located in the coastal city of Batum, Georgia. The statues are represented by a Muslim boy named Ali and a Georgian princess, Nino, from a well-known novel by Azerbaijani author Kurban Said in 1937. The tragic story of the separation of the two people ends with the invasion of Soviet Russia.

The two statues begin to move daily at 7 pm, and they merge until they get together briefly, before they leave each other. After 10 minutes the movement is completed. The statue was designed in 2007 but was installed in 2010 and since then it has been renamed "Ali and Nino".

Nice to see it! Very romantic! To get there you go to a beautiful beach border on the sea side next to the marina, we took a bicycle and raid all over!
