Georgia

Bordered by the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains, Georgia’s rich history and unique culture has been shaped by influences from both Western Asia and Eastern Europe. Known for its hospitality and delicious cuisine, Georgia boasts 1000-year-old churches and stunning mountain valleys. Tbilisi, which lies along each side of the Mtkvari River, is rapidly becoming a cultural hub. Filled with refurbished museums, chic restaurants, and newly restored buildings, you won’t run out of things to do here. In Tbilisi’s Old Town of Abanotubani you can soak in sulfur baths and take in the charm of the ancient district. Stroll through the mysterious cave cities or visit Ushguli, one of Europe’s highest villages and a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a trek to Georgia’s serene countryside by visiting the ancient Jvari Monastery which sits atop a mountain and overlooks the town of Mtskheta Stepantsminda. Surrounded by the northern slopes of the Caucasus Mountain range, a visit to the Jvari Monastery offers a cultural experience as well as mountain climbing and trekking opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
