Apartment house at Brothers Zubalashvili street, 49 in Tbilisi

Photo in June 2018:

In early December 1908, Lesja Ukrainka and Kliment Kvitka arrived from Yalta to Tiflis. They rented an apartment in a house on the Sudova street (now – Brothers Zubalashvili street), 49. They lived here for a short time, and in early 1909 moved to Telavi, where K. Kvitka was to serve.

It seems that this house has been preserved, but we do not have a photo of it yet, so we present a general panorama of old Tbilisi. From the top of Mount Narikala (pictured) to this house – about 2 km in a northwesterly direction.
