45 Black and White Photos Captured Everyday Life of Tbilisi, Georgia in 1976

Tbilisi commonly known by its former name Tiflis, is the capital and the largest city of Georgia, and lying on the banks of the Kura River.

Located on the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Tbilisi's proximity to lucrative east-west trade routes often made the city a point of contention between various rival empires throughout history and the city's location to this day ensures its position as an important transit route for global energy and trade projects. Tbilisi's varied history is reflected in its architecture, which is a mix of medieval, classical, Middle Eastern, Art Nouveau, Stalinist and Modernist structures.

Stockholm-based photographer Sten-Åke Stenberg took these amazing photographs of daily life in Tbilisi in October 1976 when he traveled to the capital of Georgia.
