Georgia’s fantastic nature and the diversity of this country were the source of inspiration for many writers and poets. From the south-east border with Azerbaijan, south with Armenia and Turkey, and from the north with Russia, discover mountains of eternal snow, mountain lakes, alpine meadows, canyon rivers full of flowers and fruit, palm coasts, natural canyons, ancient caves, mineral waters and sulphur water pools.
This is Georgia’s principal wine country, famous for its great weather and golden hills. But wine is not all that Kakheti has to offer – the region’s rich history has bequeathed us some of Georgia’s most excellent examples of church architecture. Add to this the friendliness and easy-going hospitality of the people, and you will understand why visiting Kakheti is a pleasure.
Home to Georgia’s seaside resorts and the nation’s second-largest city of Batumi. To the ancient kingdom of Colchis and the land of the Golden Fleece; today, this region of Georgia is home to magnificent UNESCO sites and fantastical mountainous scenery in both Racha and Imereti. Diverse landscapes transition from the marshlands and lowlands of western Mingrelia to one of Europe’s highest mountains in Upper Svaneti.
The Historical region in central-to-eastern Georgia is traversed by the river Mtkvari (Kura), where you will find Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi. Known to the Classical authors as Iberia, Kartli played a crucial role in the ethnic and political consolidation of the Georgians in the Middle Ages. Kartli had no strictly defined boundaries fluctuating in the course of history. After the partition of the kingdom of Georgia in the 15th century, Kartli became a separate entity with its capital at Tbilisi. The historical lands of Kartli are currently divided among several administrative regions of Georgia.
