Situated at a strategic crossroads between Europe and Asia, Georgia has been invaded by Persians, Byzantines, Arabs, Turks, Mongols and Bolsheviks; but no one has been able to crush the energy and artistic creativity of a people who consider dance and vines the expression of its Caucasian identity.
Despite this troubled history, the last armed conflict dating as late as 2008, the country has been able to protect its artistic heritage and maintain the vibrancy of its unique traditions. It is home to a biodiversity greater than that of some continents and of Homo Georgicus, the first European human known to this day.
The soul of Georgia is both European and western but with a touch of the Mediterranean expansiveness. A surprising combination making it a land to discover.
