Sat on the eastern edge of the Black Sea, Georgia is known as a remarkably beautiful country, as yet unspoilt by modern tourism, that still retains its authentic character. Legend says that Georgia was the land where Jason and his Argonauts found the Golden Fleece, and science currently says that Georgia is the home of the first ever European settler, since a 1.7 million-year-old skull was found recently under the village of Dmanisi. Georgia also has one of the longest national histories, having established statehood as early as the 2nd millennium BC, and can also be considered the birthplace of winemaking since a vintage dating back 8000 years was discovered in Shulaveri. The country still takes pride in its vineyards as well as its towering mountain ranges, where old churches and watchtowers sit and take in the panoramic views from the Great Caucasus range that stretches for 750 miles between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea.
The City of Tbilisi - Georgia's capital city sits on the banks of the Mtkvari River and is home to some 1.5 million people. Tbilisi is famous for the diverse collection of religions, cultures and ethnic groups that make up its friendly people, as well as its sulphur baths that boast amazing powers of reinvigoration. Legend says the city was built on some special hot springs after King Vakhtang Gorgasali discovered them, and the brick-domed underground baths now generate nearly 800,000 gallons of naturally heated water every day. Other popular visitor attractions include the Georgian National Museum, the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, Vorontsov's Palace and the Tbilisi Circus, while its historical landmarks include the 6th century Anchiskhati Church, the 13th century Church of Metekhi, the 4th century Narikala fortress and the 8th century Sioni Cathedral.
David Gareja monastery complex - One of the most impressive historical sites outside of Tbilisi can be found near the Azerbaijan border, and is made up from a collection of ancient monasteries founded in the 6th century. Having suffered destruction and being rebuilt many times over the centuries, while their treasures and manuscripts were scattered to the winds, Lavra, the first to be built, is now restored and inhabited by monks once again.
