Georgia celebrates Christmas on January 7, instead of December 25, due to two –week difference between Gregorian and Julian calendar. So New Year’s celebration takes place on January 14, but not as widely as on January 1.

The National Gallery  invited people to celebrate New Year’s Day together on January 13 from 9 pm till 12.30am, where Niko Priosmani’s, an eminent Georgian painter, newly restored painting SVIRI was exhibited. Visitors could also view all the permanent exhibitions by Davit Kakabadze, Lado Gudiashvili and Sculptures by Iakob Nikoladze.

Visitors could enjoy live music and a glass of glintwine.
