Choloki River

The Choloki River is located in the Autonomous Republic of Adjara and serves as a natural border with Georgia. Repeatedly the river was the center of important historical events. So, in 1854 on the river there was a battle between the Turkish army and the Imperial Russian army. In 1918, there was another battle between the Russian Empire and the Turkish troops, and again the Turkish army was repulsed.

The last battle on the river took place in 2004, and the bridge over the river was blown up. The bridge connecting Georgia with Ajaria was blown up to prevent the Georgian army from advancing to Adjaria.

After the restoration of peace, a new bridge was built across Choloki, but the old one still stands in ruins, as a reminder of violent battles.
