Not exactly in Asia, but not in Europe either, Georgia sits in a strategic position between two continents: bounded by the Black Sea to the west, by Russia to the north, by Azerbaijan and Armenia to the southeast and by Turkey to the south.
Dominated in succession by the Persians, the Arabs, the Mongols, the Turks and the Russians, Georgia is one of the world’s early centres of Christianity. This small country of the Caucasus managed to turn the page on its past as a member of the Soviet Union by earning its own culture, marked both by Byzantium and the ancient Caucasian culture.
Its different geographic areas offer an infinite variety of landscapes: splendid mountains, lush valleys and vineyards, wild rivers, sandy beaches and so much more. In addition, Georgia is home to countless cultural treasures such its monasteries, dug out of solid rock, the frescos and mosaics that decorate its holy buildings, and more elements of its rich folklore. Discover a country with a strong identity that looks to the East and the West at the same time, and that is clearly heading for the future.
