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. Tim Burford spent five years in publishing before starting to write hiking and ecotourism guides for Bradt, specialising in Latin America and eastern Europe. He is the author the Bradt travel guides to Chile, Dresden and Uruguay.
