Reconstructing Georgia

The Georgians can once again fly the national flag, but not without a fight.

The normally fun-loving and hospitable Georgians in T'bilisi can be forgiven for carrying sad and sullen faces at times.

The heavy looks are most noticeable along Prospekt Rustavelli, especially near the former Government House.

These people have to walk down this once grand street daily, and relive the memories of the human bodies drained of life as they stare at the slow progress of reconstruction.

The Parliament of Georgia welcomes interested individuals and/or groups to tour a modern architectural parliament building in Kutaisi as well as historic building in Tbilisi to learn more about the mission, role and functions of the Supreme representative legislature of Georgia.

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.

Accommodation in Tbilisi

Tbilisi Pastimes:

80, Chavchavadze Ave., 380074, Tbilisi, Georgia.

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.

Bat'umi

Bat'umi, on the Black Sea, has a subtropical climate, beaches, and scenic countryside. It is also a popular health resort.

Batumi is an exotic-looking sub-tropical city. Palms, cypresses, magnolias, oleanders, lemon and orange trees, thuja and box trees grow flowering and fragrant in the parks.

Around Georgia

Central Georgia

There’s enough to see here to make it worthwhile relocating for a few nights – probably to Borjomi or Bakuriani.

Eastern Georgia

Kakheti is a beautiful and fertile part of eastern Georgia. Viniculture is traced back to the 6th millennium BC.

Western Georgia

Svaneti is a remote region inhabited by the Svans, clans of highlanders who still use sheep fleeces to pan for gold from bubbling streams. It’s possibly from here that the legend of the Golden Fleece originated.

 Where to Stay in Georgia

Batumi, Borjomi, Kobuleti, Kutaisi, Poti, Tbilisi, Telavi.
