12401.jpegOne of the central squares of Budapest obtained the name of Shota Rustaveli, the great Georgian poet. Earlier it had hosted a monument to Rustaveli that was created by a Georgian sculptor.


The press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia told us that at the beginning of 2010 the Georgian embassy in Hungary appealed to the Budapest city council with a request to name one of the central squares in honour of Shota Rustaveli.

«Upon completing the relevant procedures the Budapest city council made a positive decision regarding the initiative of the Georgian party, so last week a sign with the square name was fixed on the square hosting the Shota Rustaveli», runs the message of the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Rustaveli monument by Merab Merabishvili was placed near the Georgian embassy in Hungary in June 2010, reminds News-Georgia.
