Rich and Delicious Food
Much of Georgia’s cuisine blends the styles of east and west amazingly. Like, for example, khinkali, which are dumplings that look strangely similar to Chinese bao but are made with lamb which gives them an almost Greek taste and texture. The food of Georgia is rich and exciting, no matter what you try or where you go, as long as you like bread, cheese, meat, soup, or stew.
Hike and Explore the Caucasus mountains
The Caucasus mountain range is one of the undeniably biggest draws to Georgia. A wild and rugged mountain range that will have you itching to climb and conquer it. Kazbegi is a national park on the slopes of the mountains which will grant you some of the best views of your life, and Svaneti is where you’ll find some of the hidden history of Georgia.
The Cave Towns of Vardzia
Georgia is defined by its wild hills and mountains, and so it might not be much of a surprise that you’ll find here a vast network of towns made of stone which are built into the mountains themselves. The cave towns can be explored at your leisure, though they are located far from the capital. Visiting them for yourself is more than worth the journey, though.
East Meets West
Georgia is a crossroads between Europe and Asia. It’s a nation predominantly Christian, and one of the earliest Christian countries on Earth. From what is now called the Middle East, Christianity spread through Georgia until it reached Rome and beyond. This means a lot of stunning churches and cathedrals. You’ll also find foods that are similar to those found in Greece as well as Middle Eastern spices, breads, and eating styles.
