    I love all things Eastern Europe and Georgia has been on my bucket list for a while now. I’ve always wanted to visit the Gergeti Trinity Church and eat traditional Khachapuri. I think the one with the eggs on top would be delicious! Plus, the landscape is simply stunning.

    I’m sure you have to specify Georgia the country and not the US state each time you talk about your experiences there! Wine made here for thousands of years in clay jars – no wonder they’re part of the cultural heritage leading to the UNESCO designation. I wouldn’t mind trying chacha either – I’m sure it would cure a lot of ailments! So much history in such a little-known country.

    Ah Georgia! This is so high on my list of places to visit and I have heard so much about it. My dream trip would be Georgia, Azerbaijan and Iran:) The cave city is fascinating and I can only imagine what it was like to have a 20k population. Very cool fact about the fact that wine was discovered there and that cave….. gosh not sure I could explore it. Happy to see it through your photos:) As for the Jumah mosque and how the Sunnis and Shias worship together… I’m amazed. I grew up in a Muslim country and I understand how profound that is.

    This is an incredible list. Some of the points are definitely new for me. I have long wanted to visit Georgia but now I will add all of these into my itinerary. Wont do the deepest cave though! Georgia has so much history and culture. The monastery and the mosque look inviting. And I would love to stay in that factory.

    Looks like there is a lot to do and see in Georgia. I love all the natural and historical sites, so this would definitely be something for me. Especially the country side and the caves appeal to me. Also the Khachapuri looks delicious. I would have to try all the different versions of it. How many did you try? I love experiencing the local cuisine in new countries.

    Been wanting to go to Georgia for long. After reading your experience, I am sure I would love this is country a lot. The caves, the natural beauty, the Gergeti Trinity Church, the swanky hotel and great food and wine are the things I love. I’ll be most excited to experience 12 different climates in an area of 70,000 square kilometers.

    Uplistsikh looks absolutely fascinating with those caves and so do the Chronicle of Georgia and Sewing factory.The latter looks vibrant with the paintings. This is the first time I am reading about Chacha…An interesting and intriguing post about Georgia !

    I too loved Georgia for all these reasons and I agree that it is really a worth visiting place. The culture, traditions and ancient history of Georgia is really worth appreciating. I loved monasteries of Georgia as they are located on beautiful hills and good to know that Georgia is one of the oldest Christianity centers. Chacha is truly interesting drink and I too loved Georgian version of Pizza.

    I wasn’t familiar with Georgia so this is a great overview post that introduces me to the many beautiful sights in the country! I would love a chance to visit Gergeti Trinity Church. I hope it is not too difficult to get to. Teatime at an ancient chaykhana would also be lovely!

    Believe it or not, I was actually looking into information on Georgia as I wanted to visit this part of Europe! And now I am sure that I would very soon visit this little gem. The country has so many unique experiences to offer. I am really fond of Greek mythology and would love to visit the cave of Prometheus. The monasteries also look so enticing. Georgia is definitely on my current plans now.
