Bit of history

Before receiving its first official name, this area, from the beginning of the XIX century, was called differently. For example, Drovyanoy, because here, on Sundays, there was a semi-official bazaar, where, among other things, they also traded firewood. Then, Headquarters, because here in the mid-1820s the first stone building was built. It was the headquarters of the Caucasian army. The building is in the style of late classicism, erected in 1824 – 1827 and in a slightly remodeled form is still preserved. After that, the name of the square changed many more times, and it has got its current name since 2006. People often gathered here for mass events, including during the Rose Revolution and the struggle for the independence of Georgia, which is why the square got this name.
