THE LAND OF STORIES IN STONE
Nestled in the Caucasus region between Europe and Asia lies the country of Georgia. With a history going back millennia, Georgia has found an identity that is unique to the region and the world. Ancient monasteries dot the landscape that harkens to its early Christianity traditions, cities of caves highlight the ingenuitiy during medieval times and mountaneous hamlets of ancient villages lie surrounded by glaciated peaks. For a small country, it is also diverse with the mighty Caucasus Mountains, the Black Sea coastline and its semi-arid regions to the east. Wandering Tbilisi is the best place to start as the blends of medieval old towns, trendy cafés and a modern skyline best showcases Georgia’s blend of past and present.
