Know about Georgia before Visting

Tbilisi
The capital of Georgia is on the Kura River; in the central eastern part of the country.

Beautiful buildings destroyed in the struggle for power by fellow Georgians at the beginning of 1992 are a constant reminder of the hundred or so who died.

After it spent some time as a theatre during the darker years of Communism, the 13th-century Metekhi church is once again open for prayers.

Older churches in T’bilisi include the 5th-century Cathedral of Zion and the 6th-century St David’s monastery.

There are some interesting cafes in the side streets where you can easily meet some friendly Georgians.

Language
The official language of Georgia is Georgian, a unique, non-Indo-European language, although Russian is also widely spoken language in much of the republic.
