Major Airports of Georgia – Tbilisi, and Batumi

Georgia, a country at the intersection of Europe and Asia, is a former Soviet republic that’s home to Caucasus Mountain villages and the Black Sea beaches. 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.

Places which I have explored

  • East Georgia(Gombori Pass)

  • Borjomi area
  • Green Monastery

I traveled from Tbilisi to all the rural areas of Georgia in the winter month of February to see the snow-clad areas with blue skies and perfect sun. My stay in Tbilisi was at Courtyard Tbilisi by Marriott. Click here to book your stay too as it is located in Independence square at Tbilisi with superb views of the city.

We hired a local person to make us go through the real culture of this place. Because of him, we are able to taste the authentic traditional food with natural and untouched surroundings. Georgia is very different in summers and winters. Both seasons are very beautiful.
