Georgia as a tour and holiday destination
Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, Georgia is a jewel in the Caucasus mountain range. The birthplace of Stalin, Georgia has come a long way from its Soviet past. Boasting many spectacular natural landscapes and bedazzling historical cities of yore, there’s something for everyone here. Tbilisi, the capital is a city nestled in a valley by the Mtkvari River. Whilst modernity has besieged the city with its museums, galleries, bars and cafes, its traditional past is ever evident in its churches and synagogues and atypical Georgian styled terraces and balconies. Not too far from Tbilisi, is Mtskheta, a UNESCO town brimming with UNESCO sites.
Mother Nature doesn’t disappoint in Georgia. A haven for all sorts of outdoorsy activities, there’s hiking, mountaineering, biking, rafting, caving and the list goes on amidst lush rivers, towering mountains, glistening glaciers and more.
Aside from all the sights to take in, another thing visitors must-try is its wine. Claiming to be the birthplace of wine, Georgia prides itself on its ancient vineyards and traditional wine-makers. Georgians have been producing wine for over 8,000 years; hence, it’s imperative to sample the region’s finest wines from the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains.
