The street runs at right angle to another one named after the US former President George Bush which also got a new name several years ago, RIA Novosti reports.

"The Georgian people are grateful to Kaczynski for his support, and that is a modest way to thank their Polish friend. We must pay the tribute to the memory of this man who became each Georgian's friend", - Chairman of Tbilisian Sakrebulo (City Assembly) Zaal Samadashvili stated.

The representatives of the Polish expatriate community in Georgia welcomed the decision.

"Of course, we gladly welcome the decision", - Chairwoman of Polonia Cultural and Educating Union of the Georgian Polish, Professor of Tbilisi State University named after Ivane Dzhavakhishvili Maria Filina told Novosti-Georgia.

She says that giving Lech Kaczynski's name to the street is a meaningful step for both countries. "The Georgian-Polish relationship is a special organism, which is over 200 years old. However, few material traces of this relationship can be found today", - she underlined.
