The Rockies, the Alps, the Caucasus? Georgia Plans for the Future

This country has beautiful mountains, dependable snow, hearty food and welcoming people. Now they just need to decide how to build a tourism industry.

Winter in Georgia usually means indoor activities or visiting ski resorts. So, here’s a list of the best things to see and do in Georgia during your winter break.

Celebrate Like a Georgian

The end of the year is a time for celebration across the world. But in Tbilisi, the historic Georgian capital, the festive period lasts well into January because of orthodox traditions.

So, if you’re not ready to say goodbye to magical lights, seasonal street food, and the sound of carols in the streets, Tbilisi could be your ideal winter escape.
