I sat down with Mariam Tokmazishvili to learn about her city, Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Tokmazishvili is a 24-year-old a master’s degree student at the University of Helsinki, studying intercultural encounters.
There are approximately 4.5 million inhabitants in Georgia and about 1.5 million in the city of Tbilisi. Georgia’s historical old buildings and churches distinguish it from other mainstream world capitals. Georgian people and their hospitality is a salient marker of the country.
