GEORGIA



Located at the crossroads of Western Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, Georgia is a stunning blend of diversity, rich history, and breathtaking beauty. The country is home to towering Caucasus Mountains, lovely Black Sea beaches, fertile valleys, and a pleasant Mediterranean climate.

For walkers and hikers, the country’s mountains and scenic landscapes are ideal escapes. For botanists and birdwatchers, the diversity in flora and fauna is enthralling. For lovers of archaeology, there are numerous ancient sites to uncover and explore. Culture lovers will find that Georgia is a true gem; one can travel along the Silk Road, trace thousand-year-old footsteps treaded by ancient trade caravans, and discover magnificent churches, cathedrals, fortresses, and cave towns.

Some of the important destinations in this country include:

  • Tbilisi: This ancient and vibrant capital city spreads out on both banks of the Mtkvari River and is surrounded on three sides by mountains. It is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-religious city on the crossroads of history, a city neither European nor Asian but a heady blend of both East and West.

  • Mtskheta: Just 20 km from Tbilisi, at the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is located on an ancient trade route.

  • Kazbegi: Kazbegi National Park is located on the northern slopes of the mighty Caucasus range. At 5,047 metres above sea level, Kazbegi Mountain (or Mkinvartsveri) is the third highest mountain in Georgia, and is surrounded by myths and religious tradition.

  • Gori: One of the oldest cities in Georgia, Gori is famous for being the birthplace of country's most infamous son, Stalin.

  • Zugdidi: The city is home to ancient settlements, historic fortresses and medieval temples. The most famous place of interest in Zugdidi is the Dadiani Palace with its stunning architecture and beautiful botanical garden.

  • Mestia: At 1,500 meters above sea level, the city is the starting point for many trips throughout the region. From the center of Mestia, one can hike up to glaciers at the bottom of Ushba, ride a horse to alpine meadows, learn the Svan culture, and ski during the winter months.

  • Kutaisi: The capital of Imereti, it is Georgia’s second largest city after Tbilisi. Elegant, tree lined streets with 19th century houses, the banks of the Rioni River, and several attractive parks, make Kutaisi a very beautiful place to stroll around and take in the many sights.
