Landscapes

Georgia is surrounded in the north and south by Caucasian mountain ranges with its snowed-topped peaks. Between those two mountain ranges, the plains extend towards the Black Sea in the west.

Coasts

The Black Sea coast has been for a long time considered as a very nice place to live, thanks to the pleasant climate and sand beaches. However, the insecurity has made the destination a lot less attractive.

The fauna and flora

From the pelicans to eagles, Georgia has extremely diverse ornithological fauna. Those who like observing birds will enjoy Georgia. The country is also rich in various types of mushrooms.

Arts and culture

Other than the cuisine, music and dance are also important components of Georgian culture.
