Georgia is a country located in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. It borders with the Black Sea, Russia, Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan, and its capital city is Tbilisi.

A lot of people tend to confuse this country with Georgia State in the U.S., so let me just clarify that the country that The Golden Scope is featuring in article has nothing to do with the United States of America.

Georgia—in Eurasia—is a very stunning country that hasn’t been invaded by tourists yet, and thanks to this, it is one of the few places in the world where it’s still possible to have a glimpse of an authentic local culture.

WHAT? WHERE? HOW?

With a population of almost 5 million people, Georgia is amongst the oldest habited countries in the world. Archaeologists found traces of Homo erectus; meaning that during the prehistoric era the area that now composes the state of Georgia was already habited by men.

With time, more and more people began to settle, until the development of the first “urban centres” in the 12th century BC. To cut it short, centuries passed by and Georgia became the unified kingdom of Georgia, and then the nation of Georgia.

This country has also been declared as one of the first ones to have installed Christianity as state religion.

HOW TO GET THERE?

Reaching Georgia is not difficult at all. You can easily fly to Tbilisi from anywhere in the world. Once you get to the capital city, you can either rent a car and find your own way around the country, or you can get your hotel to organise tours for you.
