Adventure Holidays in Georgia

Situated at the crossroads of East and West, Georgia is a land of contrast. For thousands of years traders and adventurers have crossed through here on the historic Silk Road, and their legacy remains today through the fascinating culture and ancient monuments. There is much to see, from UNESCO-listed churches and monasteries, dramatic gorges silhouetted in front of snowcapped mountains, and lush valleys. History is everywhere you turn, from the ancient cave town of Uplistsikhe, to Gori, the birthplace of Josef Stalin. Georgia is also famous for its viticulture and wine, which has been produced here for almost 10,000 years.

Georgia Adventure Holidays

In focus: sightseeing in Tbilisi

This historic capital dates back to the 4th century AD. Meander around the old town, the ancient sulphur baths and the plentiful art galleries, handicraft and painting markets, all accessible on foot. The main church of Tbilisi, Sioni Cathedral, dates back from the 17th Century and the beautifully decorated Great Synagogue, was built at the beginning of the 20th century. Walk along Rustaveli Avenue, the main artery of Tbilisi, and see the incredible collection of pre-Christian gold artefacts and jewellery at The Treasury of the State Museum.

Rising over the hill of the St. Ilya, The Holy Trinity Cathedral Tsminda Sameba is said to be the symbol of new Georgia. Sameba is the highest church in here, and its grandiose golden dome can be seen from any point in the city. After strolling around such a concentrated cultural hub, unwind at the city’s Botanical Gardens, former royal pleasure grounds adjoining Fig Gorge and reward yourself with an aperitif at Cafe Littera in the courtyard garden of the Georgian Writers’ Union.
