This is the only city in Georgia, that has completely preserved the fortress walls. The name of the city comes from the Turkic word signakh (signak), meaning fortified place, shelter. In Sighnaghi, according to a local legend, artist in love Niko Pirosmani covered the square in front of the hotel, where his beloved woman lived (French actress Margarita de Sevres), with flowers. This is sung in a popular song performed by Alla Pugacheva "Million Scarlet Roses" (1982). The city has a round-the-clock Wedding Palace. That is why Sighnaghi is called as "The City of Love".
