Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kars-Gyumri-Tbilisi railway line is a railway line that runs from the city of Kars in Turkey to the Armenian city of Gyumri, then from there on to Tbilisi, Georgia. Originally completed in 1899, the railway has been highly important during the Soviet era, both as the only rail link between Turkey and the USSR, and one of the two main railway connections between Armenia and other Soviet Republics. While the Gyumri-Tbilisi section remains Armenia's lifeline to the outside world, the Kars-Gymri section has not been operational since 1993, when Turkey following the Nagorno-Karabakh War between Armenia and Turkic-speaking Azerbaijan closed the border with Armenia in support for the Azeris in the war with Armenia.show more
