Georgia — A Different Holiday Destination
By Rusudan Tsiskreli
The Republic of Georgia is a rather small country in Eurasia, located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia. Bounded to the west by the Black Sea, Georgia is, without a doubt, a country of rare beauty and it has a wide variety of amazing places and scenery to offer to its visitors. While many people constantly choose exotic destinations when it comes to their vacations, especially summer holidays, there are some that prefer more unique and interesting destinations, such as country with a tumultuous history and rich culture, Georgia definitely meeting such standards. One of the most beautiful regions in Georgia is the Svaneti region, in the North-West, which is separated from the rest of the country by mountains, due to a complex geographic setting. The various, interconnected mountain ranges are mainly of volcanic origin and offer tourists who travel to Georgia impressive sights, lakes of rare beauty and a very different landscape than everything they might have seen before.
Due to the fact that the country is not very large, many travellers choose to go on Georgia tours, because that gives them the possibility to see all major tourist attractions and all the main sights in a rather short period of time. A peculiarity of the country is its extremely diverse climate, considering its small size, which practically separates Georgia in Eastern and Western parts. However, the Black Sea coast of Batumi in Western Georgia gives tourists one of the best summer destinations. But Georgia is not just about beautiful sights and a wonderful sea coast, as it also has a great history behind it and plenty of gorgeous buildings and architectures to show it. The Svetiskhoveli Cathedral and the Old Tbilisi are just two of the myriad of examples in this regard. People who travel to Georgia are always surprised by what they see and discover in this unique country, as they never expect such beauty and individuality.
Apart from breathtaking scenery and culturally rich places and building, Georgia also offers great fun opportunities to travellers, whether they choose Georgia tours or charted vacations. There are plenty of exciting activities that the country provides, from trekking and hiking to skiing and experiencing the local lifestyle. A particular interesting thing to note is the explosive evolution of the Georgian cuisine and wine, jumping from one era's traditions to the next's. While in Georgia, make sure you try the fancy restaurants and their delicious dishes, but also experience the uniqueness of Supra, the Georgian Table. All in all, if you want to experience a totally different type of vacation and choose a destination that will completely change your assumptions on Eurasia, then Georgia is your answer, a country that has much to offer to the tourist's eyes, mind and heart.
