National Archives of Georgia

Established in 1920 during the Democratic Republic of Georgia, the National Archives have been pivotal in preserving the nation's historical records. The Central Archive of the Contemporary History of Georgia was later founded in 1927. In 2006, the National Archives expanded further by incorporating the Central Historical Archives and the National Archive of Kutaisi.

With a collection exceeding five million exhibits, the National Archives hold a diverse range of artifacts, including written documents, film records, photos, and audio recordings, some dating as far back as the 9th century. Beyond being a repository of historical treasures, the National Archives of Georgia is also a significant scientific institution. Engaging in valuable research, particularly in disciplines like Archaeography, the Archives contribute to our understanding of Georgia's past through the exploration of historical documents.
