Why Visit Georgia?

Must-Sees in Georgia
Upper Svaneti is one of Georgia’s UNESCO sites and is a breath-taking region of the country where the quaint town of Mestia can be visited. Take on the challenge of reaching Gergeti Trinity Church, 2170 metres above sea level – accessible via a serious hike. For more modern attractions, Georgia Aquarium houses over 120,000 animals.
Georgia is blessed with fertile valleys and has a reputation of being one of the world’s oldest wine regions. Georgia has more than 500 types of native grape, and their wine comes with the brave promise of causing no hangover if brewed the traditional way – in beeswax-lined pots buried in the ground!
