5The Svaneti Museum Collection
Svaneti is an ancient region of Georgia renowned not only for its breathtaking natural beauty, but for the unique blend of Christian and pagan traditions that defines its culture. While you’re visiting Svaneti, pay a visit to the Svaneti Museum of History & Ethnography to see the grand history of the region brought to life in front of you.
6Ushguli Ethnographic Museum
In a 13th-century, Svan-style building made of limestone in Ushguli, known as machubi, you’ll learn about the ancient customs and traditions of Svaneti. 
7Mikheil Khergiani House Museum
Mikheil Khergiani was a legendary Svan mountaineer whose name is going to remain in the history of alpinism forever. A 4,960-meter-tall peak in the Turkestan range and an asteroid #3234 were named after him, and in people’s memory Khergiani would always be the fearless conqueror of mountains, the Tiger of the Cliffs.
Nestled among the rolling hills and high mountains, Ushguli in winter is draped in white, while in the summer the green fields, colorful roofs, and Svan towers will take your breath away with their beauty. Visitors to Svaneti usually start taking pictures at Enguri HPP, a truly impressive, monumental dam, but we recommend that you leave space on your memory card for Ushguli too!
They say it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey, but can’t it be both? When you visit faraway Mestia, the journey and the destination will vie for your attention and for space in your camera.
