The country of Georgia has a legendary tragic love story that all Georgians know. The story was first told in the 1937 novel called Ali and Nino, and it tells the tale of a Muslim Azerbaijani boy and Christian Georgian princess who are separated by the Bolshevik invasion. The story is a tragedy in the same vein as Romeo and Juliet: The Azerbaijani youth falls in love with the princess, but then dies defending his country. Georgia now has an iconic art installation to commemorate the famous tale. Seeing this installation and knowing the story is poignant and touching. See the statues and more of the story below.
