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 litres of wine in a sitting. A land of cultural and natural diversity, Georgia greets you with open arms and an open bottle - or two.
