Here are the top 10 reasons why you should travel to Georgia… before everyone else does!
1. Food and wine
“Every Georgian dish is a poem”, said Alexander Pushkin.
Influenced by different cultures that passed through the country, the food is more than delicious. From khinkali – dumplings filled with meat, vegetables and spices – to khachapuri and kubdari – rich flatbreads – you’ll have your mouth watering.
Not to mention that Georgia is the place where winemaking was born 8000 years ago: don’t you want to try their traditional wine?
The capital city is definitely one of the places to visit in Georgia. With its modern and ancient mix, it’s both cosmopolitan and traditional: you will be fascinated by its old town as much as you’ll enjoy the vibrant nightlife!
3. Caucasus mountains
When you travel to Georgia, you can’t help but falling in love with the breathtaking landscapes of Caucasus. Its mighty mountains with snow-capped peaks, preceded by vast green meadows and canyons will astound you all year round.
4. The Black Sea
You can enjoy its nice weather and beaches made of stones, just a couple of hours from the mountains. Batumi is the place to visit in Georgia, right on the Black Sea: you’ll love its fancy hotels and stylish seaside boulevard!
5. Spas and sulphur baths
Tbilisi was built around a site of sulphurous thermal water, so you can find a lot of bath houses where to relax and heal at the same time. If you love spas, when in Georgia you should also visit Borjomi, a resort town with healing mineral waters.
