What do you think about naming Tbilisi streets after the personages of Knight in the Panther’s Skin?

Wednesday, September 11
“I wonder what the members of Tbilisi City council are thinking that such ideas are coming to their minds.”
Artiom, Journalist, 26

“I like the idea, the poem is Georgian, and I welcome naming the streets after the personages of the well-known poem. I had this idea in mind before it was initiated.”
Giorgi, IT specialist, 27

“I think that the idea is absolute nonsense… Knight in the Panther’s Skin is a brilliant poem and it should remain just that: as a poem…”
Irakli, Student, 22

“I welcome Avtandili Street… I wonder which street will be named as wood-goblins’ street?
Avtandil, Sportsman, 31

“I think there are more important issues for the municipality and the government to be solved in the city. However, I do not mind if the streets are named after the famous characters.”
Nino, marketer, 29

“Well if we have Aliev and Bush streets, why not, but the municipality still should consider focusing on more important problems in the city. Instead of changing street names why would not they deal with unbearable air pollution in Tbilisi?”
Ana, associated professor, 34

“This is ridiculous, but well, at least creative. I have nothing against renaming.”
Mancho, student, 22

“I have nothing against giving names from this poem to streets, especially as they are in the suburbs, but still, I think Sakrebulo has more serious issues on the agenda like economic policy.”
Nata, Lawyer, 22

“I think it will not be practical to call the streets names after the poem.”
Lile, PR Manager, 26
