Flights to Georgia
The country of Georgia is located in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, and bounded by Russia, Turkey, and the Black Sea to the north, south, and west, respectively. With the country’s largest city and capital Tbilisi, Georgia has a population of approximately five million. When in Georgia, the most widespread language group is the Kartvelian family with Georgian, Svan, Mingrelian, and Laz, although the official languages of Georgia are Georgian, along with Abkhaz as the official language within the autonomous region of Abkhazia. Around 71 percent of the country’s population speak Georgian, with a nine percent of Russian, seven percent Armenian, and six percent Azerbaijani, with another seven percent of other languages. Although small in size, Georgia experiences extremely diverse climate, with two main climatic zones that separates the eastern and western parts; western Georgia lies within the humid subtropical zone while eastern Georgia has a transitional climate from humid subtropical to continental.
What to see & do
The cities to visit in Georgia include Tbilisi, Akhaltsikhe, Batumi, Borjomi, Gori, Kutaisi, Mtskheta, Sukhumi, and Telavi. Tourist spots include the Bakuriani ski slopes, the Georgian Military Highway, Kakheti wineries, Mount Kazbeg, Davit Gareja, Pasanauri, Shatili, Upper Svaneti, Mazeri, Vardzia, and Uplistsikhe. Ecotours can also be done in Georgia, with its biodiversity due to the country’s high landscape and low latitude. Georgia is home to approximately a thousand species of vertebrates (330 birds, 160 fish, 48 reptiles, and 11 amphibians). The forests are also inhabited by a number of large carnivores such as brown bears, wolves, lynxes, and Caucasian leopards. An endemic bird of Georgia, the common pheasant, or the Colchian Pheasant, is widely introduced throughout the globe as an important game bird. Resorts are also abundant in the country, with about 103 resorts situated in different climatic zones in Georgia. Georgia also boasts of 2,000 mineral hot springs and more than 12,000 historical and cultural monuments, four of which are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites (Bagrati Cathedral, Gelati Monastery, Mtskheta, and Upper Svaneti).
How to get around Georgia
For the most of Georgia, taxis, minibuses, city buses, and trains are available modes of transportation. Taxis are the most convenient methods of travel and are relatively cheap. Although cheap, some of the taxi drivers are known to exaggerate prices for foreigners; it is recommended to establish the destination and price before getting on the vehicle. Official Georgian taxis are required to install taxi meters but most drivers are not going to use them unless prompted. Even with official taxis, there are still unofficial ‘gypsy cabs’ in Georgia. Other options include the minibus and city bus. Minibuses or marshrutkas move along an established route; to get on the minibus, find out the number of the route and hold out a hand with the palm facing down to hail for a minibus. City buses on the other hand are the new Ukrainian Bohdan buses that operate within Tbilisi. These city buses do not have air conditioning and are the cheapest way to get around. Travelling by train is another transportation option made available to travellers within Georgia. Georgian trains are cheap but are rather slow.
