A small country with a fiery heart

Located on the edge of Europe and Asia, Georgia, Georgia boasts both Mediterranean and European cultures. This country on the coast of the Black Sea this may be small, but it is passionate.

This country is an amazing cluster of cultures, religions and fascinating landscapes, from the snowy peaks of the Caucasus Mountains, to golden steppes and bright, colourful cities. Georgia is an incredible, undiscovered destination, decorated with many UNESCO sites that feature impressive rock-cut monasteries and cave towns, as well as millennia-old archaeological sites and dramatic scenery. Not just that, but the people are some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Georgians are proud of their heritage, and embrace their rich culture wholeheartedly.

Georgia will take your breath away, with flavourful dishes, fiery chacha, delicious wine, energetic dances and a language that is flowery and melodic to the ears. This will be an unforgettable experience of a lifetime!
