Bradt’s Georgia provides travelers and hikers with all the insights, hard facts and hidden treasures for this little-explored but very welcoming ex-Soviet state.


At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Georgia unassumingly offers visitors the best of the Caucasus region?beautiful churches, wild and unspoiled countryside perfect for hiking and cycling, welcoming locals, homemade wines, and marathon toasting. With up-to-date details on a growing number of ecotourism and adventure-tourism initiatives and the latest on the political situation and break-away states, Bradt's Georgia aids you in avoiding meal-time faux pas, reveals the country's hidden cultural treasures, and offers practical details on varied activities from countryside caving, visiting ancient pagan ruins, or tackling four liters of wine in a sitting. A land of cultural and natural diversity, Georgia greets you with open arms and an open bottle?or two.

At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Georgia can seem a bewildering blend of influences. The elegant capital, Tbilisi, now has a burgeoning cafT and theatre scene, while Batumi on the Black Sea coast is a dynamic boomtown where limousines cruise down palm-lined boulevards. Yet the country more than lives up to its reputation as a wild frontier, from its time-warp Svan villages crowned with defensive towers to the pagans of Khevsureti who still speak in verse. And ranged above it all is the beautiful High Caucasus, a seventh heaven for walkers and climbers.

With background sections covering the rich history and culture of this hospitable country as well as all the practical information you will need, Bradt's Georgia remains the essential choice for the curious visitor.
