Georgia

 

Georgia is a small country right on the intersection between Europe and Asia, sandwiched between Russia in the north and Turkey in the South.

 

It’s an ancient country tugged away in the Caucasus Mountains and home to very determined people who, despite a tough history of war and conquerings, still strongly value their unique religion, culture and centuries-old traditions!

 

Georgia, or Sakartvelo as the citizens call it, is slowly on becoming a very popular touristic destination. After living there for almost one year, we understand why travelers are drawn to this magnificent and wild country!
