WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT GEORGIA
Despite its diminutive size, nature in Georgia
is very diverse. To the north, around places like Kazbegi or Svaneti, you have the Great Caucasus mountains with their snow-capped peaks. Around Kutaisi you will find forests and canyons, or therapeutic spring water in the town. Borjomi, a health and wellness destination since the times of the Russian. Empire, when Georgia received Russian nobility seeking to bathe in Borjomi’s therapeutic water.
One of the main reasons why your should frequently visit Georgia is
because of the people. They are welcoming, friendly, proud, not subservient and with good cultural level
Georgian food is very diverse, often based on the country’s rural nature and austere history. Khinkali, a local version of dumplings, which can be filled with potato, beef, cheese or mushrooms, is a very popular option. But khachapuri, a pizza-like dough filled with cheese, which comes in many versions and toppings is everyone’s favorite !
Research indicates that wine has been made in Georgia for over 7,000 years, so the country can be considered the birthplace of the drink. Also, over half of the grape varieties in the world come from here.
In summer the capital Tbilisi will see temperatures of up to 35
Celsius. On my winter visits, I’ve rarely seen temperature fall below 5C. But it’s good worth remembering that it does snow in many parts of the country, especially higher up in the mountains. Gudauri, near Kazbegi, is a good place to go skiing or snowboarding, with great infrastructure. Other ski destinations include Bakuriani and Mestia.
Georgia is one of the safest countries you’ll ever travel to. Petty crime is nearly unheard of, murders, tourist kidnappings, as cited by Come Back Alive, are absolute nonsense. Police corruption is gone, unlike other countries in the region, and our friends in uniform are quite well trained.
