Mountainous and located amid gorgeous nature, with unique architecture and affordable prices, Georgia is becoming more and more popular among curious travelers from all over the world. While some people prefer travelling with an agenda having the details of the trip planned ahead, others enjoy more spontaneous trips imagining only vaguely where to visit and what to do. If you belong to the second group and decided to visit Georgia for your next trip, you are, probably, curious what the country is like, how is the weather here and other important facts about it.
Weather in Georgia
Firstly, you might be wondering what the weather in Georgia is like. Although the country has mild winters and hot summers, in general, it experiences all four seasons. During summers the average temperature varies from 20 °C (68 °F) to 24 °C (75.2 °F), while in winter average temperatures are 2 °C (35.6 °F) to 4 °C (39.2 °F) with January being the coldest month in all seasons.
Predictable, yet rather justified is our next suggestion- to spend at least two-three days in Georgia’s gorgeous capital Tbilisi. With luxurious architecture and vibrant nightlife, the city is a good option as for family travels, as well as for a fun trip with friends. In the middle of the old town are located Sulphur Baths renown for their healing effects both physically and mentally. Also, a funicular car might be of big interest and curiosity while simultaneously being a transportation riding to Mount Mtatsminda. While it is possible to visit the most of city’s sightseeing spots throughout two-three days, Tbilisi is so atmospheric, you, most probably, would want to stay there even after those visits.
Places to visit in Georgia
As the country is bounded by Black Sea, it is also a beloved summer vacation spot. While there are many places to visit in Georgia, among them various resort towns, such as Kobuleti, Ureki, Kvariati, we would suggest you to travel to Batumi. The capital of Adjara and the second largest city in Georgia, some people consider it the Las Vegas of Georgia. However, gambling is not the only activity the city is famous for- it is a significant sea port, as well as rather affordable and convenient town for family vacations. Mostly renown as the town with newly-built high-rise buildings, it, nonetheless, kept its old authentic face, too.
Wine tourism in Georgia
If you are a “wine-person”, then you will be glad to know that wine tourism in Georgia is also on its peak. Being one of the most significant spheres both from state’s economic and cultural perspectives, Georgian wine-making is an old tradition. The ancient way through which the Georgian wine is made is protected by UNESCO as well, being included in its Intangible Cultural Heritage List. One of the most famous wines are made from the grapes called Saperavi, while there is a variety of other vines used for the production of Georgian wine, such as Rkatsiteli, Alexandreuli, Ojaleshi, Mtsvane, to name a few.
Whether you prefer planned or spontaneous trips, Georgia will not leave you disappointed. Located in the meeting point of Europe and Asia, the country’s culture is as diverse and interesting as it may seem. You will be amazed by the country’s rich nature, affordable and high-quality food, as well as diverse architecture and unique wine.
