Bradt's guide to Georgia will provide travelers with the most up-to-date and detailed source of hard facts for independent travelers and hikers on getting to and around this little-explored but very welcoming ex-Soviet state. Thorough coverage of the increasingly cosmopolitan capital, Tbilisi, and provincial towns are provided, together with Tim Burford's suggestions on itineraries that cover the highlights of Georgia's picturesque and unspoiled countryside. The Georgian people are warm-hearted and always keen to toast travelers with local wines. Information on accommodation and places to eat is supplemented by guidelines on Georgian hospitality and customs. Exploring the Black Sea coast, the Caucasus mountains and Svaneti region, where Georgia's unique architecture and customs are preserved, is a must for all travelers wishing to explore off the beaten, track; a detailed guide to each region is given. At the crossroads between Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, Georgia hosts a great many species of rare wildflowers, birds, and mammals, from red deer and wild goats to the lynx and jackal, which can still be found in the Caucasus mountains. An introduction to the flora and fauna is given for both casual visitors and keen conservationists. Overland travel to neighboring Armenia is popular with many visitors, for whom the final chapter on this mountainous country is a useful addition. With the focus on the area from the Georgian border to the capital, Yerevan, the chapter gives brief but essential, practical, and background information.
