0 Reviews
Situated at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Georgia offers Turkish-style cuisine, trekking opportunities in unspoilt valleys and some of the most hospitable people you're ever likely to meet. An ancient land where Noah's son Thargamos settled and Jason went to obtain the golden fleece, it now has a flourishing modern scene in Tbilisi's cafés, theatres and markets. Tim Burford covers every aspect of this fascinating country, from the pagans of Khevsureti who speak in verse to the desert monastery at Udabno. Combined with copious detail on Georgian customs, music and full practical information, the Bradt guide remains the essential choice for the curious visitor.
