A country at the intersection of Europe and Asia, is a former Soviet republic that’s home to Caucasus Mountain villages and Black Sea beaches. It is a beautiful country shaped by rugged mountains, rivers, valleys and meadows. This amazing country lies in the middle of Caucasus region and has unspoiled natural beauty to complement its unique culture. The country is perfect for hiking, trekking, and exploring at a leisurely pace. Quaint villages and towns still dots the countryside while modern cities like Tbilisi, Batumi, and Borjomi are highly captivating and photogenic. It’s famous for Vardzia, a sprawling cave monastery dating to the 12th century, and the ancient wine-growing region Kakheti.

The capital, Tbilisi, is known for the diverse architecture and mazelike, cobblestone streets of its old town.

Its diverse architecture encompasses Eastern Orthodox churches, ornate art nouveau buildings and Soviet Modernist structures.

To Tbilisi’s eternal charms of a dramatic setting in the deep valley of the swift Mtkvari River, picturesque architecture, an ever-lively arts and cultural scene, and the welcoming Georgian lifestyle have been added a whole new 21st-century dimension of inviting cafes and restaurants serving ever better food, up-to-date lodgings from backpacker hostels to international five-stars, funky bars and clubs, spruced-up museums, galleries, parks, plazas and whole streets, modernised transport and a sprinkling of eye-catching contemporary architecture. All of which make it a much easier, and more fun, city to visit and live in than it was less than a decade ago.

Tbilisi is the capital of Georgia, its cultural, economic and political center, and what is more very interesting and diverse city. According to the legend, the king of ancient Iberia, Vakhtang I Gorgasali, once hunted in the forests. After some time, he saw a pheasant, then shot and killed the bird. The king sent his falcon to find the prey. In search of birds, Vakhtang Gorgasali with his hunters came upon the source and saw that both the falcon and the pheasant got into its waters. The source turned to be hot. And amazed with this find Vakhtang I decided to found here the city realizing a great advantage of that location. In addition, to the hot sources, the location had many important for the city construction factors: a protected position between the mountains, location on a trade route, strategically favourable factors. Thus, according to the legend, the city of Tbilisi was founded. The word Tbili is translated from Georgian as «warm». Tbilisi is a city of warm sources. Today terracotta dome baths are combined with modern business centres, but above all this is still hovering spirit of the old Tbilisi.

A Fabulous Trip

Thank you for arranging a fabulous trip.

I must admit, the hotel and the staff at Mykonos and Santorini were fabulous and went out of their way for everything we needed. And the place of course was ‘breath taking’.

I would like to thank Dhwani & Travelmartindia team so much for such a wonderful trip. J
