Virtual Walk Tbilisi
The virtual walk Tbilisi is the second project in the series and was realized in autumn 2022
Tbilisi is the largest city of Georgia and its capital. Because of its location on the crossroads between Europe and Asia the history and architecture of this town is a special mix of different styles throughout the centuries.
The multiple cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds characterize the places of this virtual walk including numerous building sites which contribute to further urban changes.

All places contain multiple sounds. Headphones or a connected speaker system are highly recommended!
