Kutaisi is surrounded by deciduous forests to the northeast and the northwest. The low-lying outskirts of the city have a largely agricultural landscape. It was the capital of Georgia before Tbilisi. In 2011 Mikheil Saakashvili, the president of Georgia, signed a constitutional amendment relocating the parliament to Kutaisi.
Kutaisi Central Park- Kutaisi Central Park is located in the heart of the city. There you can see nice fountains and feel pleasant breath coming down from the hills.
