In the 1920s, a new plan for the industrialization and development of Tbilisi was adopted. The Old Town with its irregular buildings, narrow streets, churches and caravan-serais was not very suitable as the center of the capital of the young Soviet Republic. So, in addition to the construction of the residential areas and implementation of the large-scale infrastructure projects, there was a plan to create a new center and new points of attraction. So the center had been moved to the area of   the current Republic Square. There throughout the entire Soviet period, leading and advanced local architects had a chance to realize their projects. So today, in a relatively small area, we can simultaneously observe excellent examples of the 1920s constructivism, magnificent architecture of the 1930s-50s, inventive, but subtle 1960s and heavy brutalism of the late 1970s and 80s.
