Top 7 Places You Should Visit When You Travel in Georgia

Georgia is an Eastern European country bordering Russia, Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Not surprisingly, Georgia has become popular with tourists in recent years for its ancient monasteries, peaks in the Caucasus, and traditional wine culture.

This makes it an attractive, intriguing and beautiful tourist destination. Georgia is primarily interested in nature, thanks to its scenic beauty and mountaineering opportunities. Below are the 7 best and most beautiful places to see in this mountainous country.

Abudelauri Lakes

Bringing a camera to Georgia is really a must and not taking one to Abudelori Lake causes immediate regret. The green, blue, and white basin is located east of Kasbegi and surrounds the most spectacular peaks in the Georgian Caucasus.

Inexperienced climbers can start their trek from the village of Roska to the lake, while experienced trekkers can opt for a full day hike from Juta. The steep peaks and the Abudelori Glacier are just a few of the rewards you can get when travelling to these alpine lagoons.


Mtskheta is a town near Tbilisi and is considered the centre of the Georgian Orthodox Church. Because of this, you will find many stone cathedrals spread all over Mtskheta. The speciality here is the Jwari Monastery. The 6th-century Jawari Monastery is located on a hilltop.


It is a symbol of the early Orthodox Church in Georgia and was one of the first countries to adopt Christianity. The Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, located below the heart of Mtskheta, is the main axis. The UNESCO-listed church was originally built in the 4th century and is a masterpiece of architecture.


The West-Georgian city of Borjomi is world-famous for its mineral waters, but also for its brilliant architecture and nature. Visit the Mineral Water Park, where you can sample Borjomi water from its source.

For impressive architecture, visit the beautiful Firusa House and the Romanovs Palace, a colourful mansion with several historical exhibits. The nature around the city provides an excellent area for mountain biking and mountaineering. This region offers nearly a dozen outdoor walking trails that will keep you busy.


Although almost every household in Georgia makes grapes and many families make their own wine, Georgia has a special wine region called Kakheti. This area covers the entire eastern part of Georgia, and its most famous city is Telavi. It is equipped with wine factories and tasting capabilities.

There is evidence that Georgia's winemaking history goes back more than 8000 years, with some wineries still operating in the old fashioned way. Taste the aged and fermented query wine in large clay pots with all the ingredients of the grapes kept inside. Learn more about this tradition, usually wine and enjoy a few glasses at one of the many wineries—a day trip or by visiting places like the Shumi Winery and the Teliani Valley.


Gori is located in central Georgia and was born in 1878 by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. The city now has a museum dedicated to Stalin, which gives visitors a somewhat one-sided image of the Soviet leader.

Here his kindness and outstanding leadership take centre stage in the exhibitions. However, it is also an interesting place for history buffs. AD It functioned as an important religious and political centre in pre-Christian Georgia, and to this day, you can still walk through wine cellars, houses, and carved temples.

Tusheti National Park

Tusheti National Park is part of the Caucasus Mountains and is shared by Russia and Georgia. Tusheti is a feast for the eyes, with lush green valleys, nerve-wracking roads and ordinary forts. Climbing, as in many other areas, is by far the best way to explore this northern and northeastern park. The road through Abano Pass is scenic and scary, but well worth the drive.

Don't forget to stop at the Torha Pass scene where the rocky mountains and swaying roads reveal themselves.

David Gareja Monastery

Several monasteries and churches in Georgia are carved into the hills or rocks, and the Temple of David Goreza is one of the most spectacular.

The monastery dates back to the 6th century, and some original murals can still be seen. You can walk through rooms and cobbled canals that do not require much imagination to visualize how the monks lived here in the past. This fascinating cloak is located near the border with Azerbaijan, and the surrounding scenery stands out compared to other stone-cut churches in the country.

The tundra and magical rainbow hills surrounding the monastery are worth a 3-hour drive from Tbilisi. The trail runs up the hill behind, and from there you get an overview of the multi-coloured mountains to the north and a view of the Azerbaijani stairs to the south.
