Georgia

Georgia, see the amazing cave dwellings

Georgia is making its mark on the European tourist scene as an exciting, new tourist destination. It´s even in the Eurovision Song Contest that most Europeans will be familiar with! The country had plenty of international visitors in 2017. Great efforts are underway to open up the country more and increase tourism.

Why not explore Georgia by car?

There are several options available if you´d like to see something of this country. One of them is to hire a 4 wheel drive vehicle and get out there and explore this fascinating country. The landscape changes almost from hour to hour in this little country of big experiences.
Another option is to visit some of the amazing UNESCO attractions that are to be found all over the country, including one of the very few cave cities in the world here in Georgia. (Other cave cities can be found in southern Italy (Matera, Basilicata)  and northern Sudan). The largest, “The Cave of Prometheus”, discovered in 1984, includes a 1000 m. route that took workmen 4 years to layout the  stalactites, stalagmites, petrified waterfalls, bottomless holes, and cavernous ceilings, all illuminated by multi-colored lights.

Where Europe meets Asia, where the majestic Caucasus Mountains tower above the landscape, is where you´ll find Georgia. These magnificent landscapes are adorned with cultural pearls such as ancient cities, impressive monasteries, and age-old churches. It is the world´s next oldest Christian country and has a wealth of culturally historic reminders from the early Christian era.
