Republic of Georgia

Our planned 2020 trip to the Republic of Georgia was postponed due to the virus. Watch for new dates once travel restrictions in the country are lifted.

The crossroads of Europe and Asia...

"The Republic of Georgia captures the attention of those with a spirit of adventure and a thirst for discovery. Come visit us and we promise that you will return home with unforgettable memories!"

Georgia, located on the crossroads of Europe and Asia, is a unique blend of cultures and traditions. The country offers an amazing variety of heritage, religions and fascinating landscapes from snowy peaks of the Caucasus Mountain range to the fertile lowlands; semi-deserts to wetlands and subtropics.

Officially recognized as the birthplace of winemaking, Georgia keeps producing great variety of wines in its unique and ancient way: fermenting the grapes in clay jars buried in the ground. This culture is vibrant and visitors are often treated with improvised concerts and shows anywhere they are in Georgia because, and as the saying goes, “Every Georgian is a singer and dancer.” 

But perhaps no other part of Georgian culture reflects the nature of its people as the cuisine and feasting habits associated with it – a diversity of tasty dishes from various parts of the country that have been influenced by many cultures that passed through.
