Vera is centrally located on the hills just above the main Rustaveli Avenue. With small winding streets and houses built on the steep hills, Vera district has and always will have special feel to it. From olden days this part of Tbilisi has been a source of inspiration for various artists and songwriters. Many famous Georgian historians, playwrights, theatrical figures and renowned poets have inhibited Vera district. First Georgian musical shot in 1973 was called “Melodies of Vera”. Chovelidze Street, formerly called Brick Street, originated in the 19th century, named after Tamar Chovelidze, who tragically died fighting for Georgia’s independence and unity on April 9, 1989 in soviet times this building was publishing house and it had industrial look.
