The Republic of Georgia--Sakartvelo to Georgians--is a country of varied landscapes. It impresses with towering mountains and broad lowlands, extensive forests and deserts. When experienced in combination, these elements of nature create an unforgettable experience.
Georgia is located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, caught between the Greater and Lesser Caucasus mountain ranges, bordered to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by the Russian Federation, to the south-west by Azerbaijan and to the south by Turkey and Armenia. Its history is tied to the Silk Road, the ancient trade route between Europe and Asia.
