Geography

Georgia has the most interesting and beautiful landscape in the post-Soviet countries. Along the north, the beautiful Caucasus Mountains border, the Lesser Caucasus range that runs parallel to the Turkish and Armenian borders, and the Surami and Imereti ranges that connect the Greater Caucasus and the Lesser Caucasus, create natural barriers that are partly responsible for cultural and linguistic differences among regions. Due to the mountainous landscape and harsh nature of Georgia, it is often the case that villages and regions are cut off from communication. Earthquakes and landslides in mountainous areas present a significant threat to life and property.
Georgia is an area where you can visit the snowy mountains one day and get a tan a few hours at the seaside.
Georgia has a special nature, amazing weather, and interesting views that will really amaze you.
Georgia has about 25,000 rivers, many of which power small hydroelectric stations. Drainage is into the Black Sea to the west, and through Azerbaijan, into the Caspian Sea to the east.
The largest river is the Mtkvari River that flows 1,364 km from northeast Turkey across the plains of eastern Georgia -through the capital, Tbilisi- and into the Caspian Sea.

The Rioni River, the largest river in western Georgia, rises in the Greater Caucasus and empties into the Black Sea at the port of Poti. Poti is one of the important port cities in Georgia.
Georgia is a very attractive and extravagant country for tourists. They are amazingly fascinated at any time of year here. Many of them are trying to buy homes and stay in Georgia altogether.
Tourists are particularly attracted to the mountainous regions of Georgia, such as Svaneti and Racha, Kazbegi, Khevsureti, Tusheti, Mtiuleti.

You will also find many tourists on the seaside, such as Batumi, Kobuleti, and Sarpi. The latter is situated on the Turkish border and is characterized by special nature hotels in the mountains overlooking the sea.
Kakheti by its beautiful nature mainly attracts tourists in autumn when the grapes ripen and the vintage starts. Kakheti hosts anyone with famed wine, delicious roast meat, and freshly baked bread.
Samegrelo is also famous for tourists. Okatse’s amazing canyon, Megrelian cuisine, and special green nature attract tourists.

Deep mountain gorges form topographical belts within the Greater Caucasus.
Georgia participates in several international environmental agreements. It is a party to Air Pollution, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Climate Change-Kyoto Protocol, Desertification, Endangered Species, Hazardous Wastes, Law of the Sea, Ozone Layer Protection, Ship Pollution, and Wetlands.

Despite the harsh climate in some regions of Georgia, Georgia is a rather exotic country that attracts people and leaves no one indifferent.
