Theatre Acropolis

The build of this Georgian magnificent house of culture started in the early fifties. It was designed by a Soviet architect and the project took more than ten years to complete. Somewhere down the road, a Greek architect took over and made some noticeable modifications to the design. He got inspired by the Acropolis buildings in Athens. The facade of the building clearly resembles this with its immense pillars and triangle shaped top.

After the build, it was the largest house of culture in the region. Everybody from the surrounding villages would visit the house to attend plays and watch movies. After the Soviet Union collapsed in the early nineties the house was no longer maintained and slowly started to decay. Nowadays I really fear for this theater. The ceiling has a great amount of water damage. It won't be long until it fully collapses.
