We planned this trip for 2 years. I didn’t know what to think about going to Georgia but honestly this country absolutely blew my mind. It was literally something that I was waiting to discover. You have this dream about going somewhere and you just think “Yes that’s the perfect place to be”.
The Georgia is located in Europe, but its own people describe it in a very lovely way, it’s the balcony of Europe. Yes I think that is true. Balconies are usually my favorite part of an apartment and I fully agree. we arrived with very little expectation but Georgia took us on a journey, taught us how to appreciate cherish this nature and showed me and everyone what influence people can have on your soul. This is a Christian country where Georgians keep Christian values and traditions. Georgians made this house the one place in the world we felt safe. It’s may by!
This was a journey into humanity and kindness. A gem between Europe and Asia and a place you will not regret visiting. This is all based on our personal experience and to date if someone asks me this very difficult question about the best country I have ever visited, well… my answer hasn’t changed a still, and I still say it is Georgia for present. The country that has left a massive impact on my life as a wanderer. If I return there. Then those futures days I’ll devote to the mountains and nature as a whole. They have not been studied by me yet. The Caucasus mountains are unique.

Tbilisi (English /tᵻˈbiːlᵻsi/; Georgian: თბილისი [tʰˈbiliˌsi], in some countries also known by its former foreign name Tiflis (English /tᵻˈfliːs/ or /ˈtɪflᵻs/), is the capital and the largest city of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Kura River with a population of approximately 1.5 million people. Founded in the 5th century AD by Vakhtang I Gorgasali, the monarch of the Kingdom of Iberia, Tbilisi since served as the capital of various Georgian kingdoms and republics. Between 1801 and 1917, then being under the rule of the former Russian Empire, Tbilisi was the seat of the Imperial Viceroy, governing both Southern and Northern Caucasus.
Because of its location on the crossroads between Europe and Asia, and its proximity to lucrative east-west trade routes, throughout history Tbilisi was a point of contention between various global powers. The city’s location to this day ensures its position as an important transit route for various energy and trade projects. Tbilisi’s diverse history is reflected in its architecture, which is a mix of medieval, classical, Middle Eastern, Art Nouveau, Stalinist and Modernist structures.
Historically Tbilisi has been home to people of multiple cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, though it is currently overwhelmingly Eastern Orthodox Christian. Its notable tourist destinations include cathedrals Sameba and Sioni, classical Freedom Square, Rustaveli Avenue and Agmashenebeli Avenue, medieval Narikala Fortress, pseudo-Moorish Opera Theater, and the Georgian National Museum.
