The Korolistskali (Georgian: ყოროლისწყალი, alternative name Karolitskhali) is a river by the East coast of the Black Sea, near Batumi, Georgia.

History[edit]

Between 1907-1915, during the period of Tsarist Russia, pioneering Russian photographer Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky took a self-portrait on the Korolistskali River - it is one of the earliest colour photographs ever taken.[1]
