The Sukhum Fortress is a stronghold in the city of Sukhumi in Georgia . The Sukhum Fortress was built in the 1st century, during the Roman dominion. In the middle of the 5th century, a new, Byzantine Fortress was built at the place of the old one. At the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries, the Sukhum Fortress was rebuilt by the Turks and the walls were fortified. These walls were made of stone, and they were up to 2 m wide. In 1810, the fortress served as the barracks of the Russian troops. Later, it was rebuilt into a prison. Nowadays, only the southwestern tower with Romanesque foundation walls, the northern wall with the remains of the gate and the tiling in the interior of the fort have been preserved.
