Introducing Georgia

Georgia has long been one of the finest holiday destinations for those in the know. The country has a plethora of stunning wonders; it a place with rocky mountains, verdant valleys, warm beaches, dynamic cities, and has a rich heritage, despite the country’s almost 30-year transition from the frugality of Soviet control.

The dynamic capital of Georgia, Tbilisi, is a historic town with old architecture that represents the complicated history of wars and cultures that have shaped the nation. You can find quaint stores selling their goods, multi – coloured historic buildings with wooden balconies, and verdant spaces as you stroll the local streets. There are also a huge number of delightful restaurants and cafés that you can unwind at and watch the world pass by.

Top Locations in Georgia

Gelati Monastery
This enormous Georgian site is located 11 kilometres to the east of Kutaisi. The structure contains the belltower, an academy, the two-story St. Nicolas' church with its arched passage, the dome-shaped St. George's church, and the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin. The monastery was built in the 12th century by King David the Builder and is decorated with paintings, mosaics, and frescoes. Do visit the tomb of King David, which is near the south gate. The only surviving mosaic design from mediaeval Georgia is found in the major church.
Narikala Fortress
This historic castle, which overlooks Tbilisi, is known as the "Mother Fortress of Georgia" and is divided into two walled sections by the sulphur baths at the fortress's base and the botanical gardens beyond it. It has expansive views of Tbilisi and may be reached on foot or by taking a beautiful cable car journey. The most recent walls were built in the 17th century, but it was originally constructed as a Persian fortification in the fourth century. The fortress's interior was completely destroyed by an earthquake, however the walls withstood.
Vardzia Cave Monastery
Located on the edge of Erusheti Mountain, southern Georgia, these caves listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, span five hundred metres. The structure was built in the second part of the twelfth century, under the rule of King Tamar, the first woman to be anointed as a King in Georgian history. The name for the caves came about after Queen Tamar got lost in the caves and yelled out to her uncle, "ak var dzia," which is Arabic for "here I am."
