Georgia (Sakartvelo) is a my country in the Coucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of western Asia and eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the black sea, to the north be Russia, to the south be Turkey and Armenia and to the southeast Azerbaijan. The Capital of Georgia is Tbilisi with 2 million Population. It is political economical and cultural center .Georgia covers a territory of 69,700 square kilometers and its population almost 5 million. The History of Georgia is very rich. We know in the world are 14 script , one of is Georgian. Georgia always was big empires target such as(Persia ,Otoman, Bizantic Russian empires) because we have strategic location, we are on the border Europe and Asia. Finally all empires are collapsed Georgia is alive again.
I think Georgian Culture and mentality it is so different, This includes Asian and europian mentality and culture. Georgia second name is vine and loves country. We love Guests it is main reason why is always a lot of tourist in the Georgia. Especial mountains and seaside cities. We have one city east of Georgia, region Kakheti. Its name is love city Signagi, because there you can see everyday some engagement also you can find foreigner couples. I want to talk about Capital city of Georgia Tbilisi. Tbilisi is one of the oldest city in the world, it based V AD century. Tbilisi was built by king Vakhtang V (gorgasali), Tbilisi is beautiful multicultural city European and Asian buildings with narrow streets Tbilisi divided into 2 parts with river Mtkvari which is longest river in the Georgia. Old and modern parts both are amazing, lots of Orthodox churches, Mosques, catholic, Gregorian and Russian churches. Also population is multinational most part Georgians, Armenian, Russian, Estonian, Jews. Transports is easy an cheap. you can use subway, buses mini buses. In the Tbilisi is biggest airport in Georgia, Tbilisi international airport .After Tbilisi second city is Kutaisi west of Georgia. It is really beautiful and old city. There is Georgian parliament building and many important places. I want to write short describe History of Georgia. During the classical era, independent kingdoms became established in what is now Georgia. The kingdoms of Colchis and Iberia adopted Christianity in the early 4th century. A unified kingdom of Georgia reached the peak of its political and economic strength during the reign of king David IV and Queen Tamar 11th 12th centuries. At the beginning of the 19th century, Georgia was annexed by the Russian empire. After a brief period of independence following the Russian Revolution of 1917. Georgia was occupied by Soviet Russia in 1921. Becoming Georgian soviet socialist Republic and part of the Soviet union. by the way it was Stalin (Ioseb Jughashvili) the famous Georgian idea to occupied Georgia. After independence in 1991, post-communist Georgia suffered from civil unrest economic crisis for most of the 1990s.This lasted until the Rose Revolution of 2003, after which the new government introduced democratic and economic reforms and it was huge steps for development. Georgia is divided 9 region 1 capital and 2 autonomic republics Adjara and Abkhazia. 1991-1993 years was war in abkhazia and today Abkhazia and Samachablo(south Osetia) they are separate republics (De-facto) but no one recognize them besides Russia, Nikaragua, venesuela. 2008 year 7-11 august was war Georgia vs Russia for Samachablo. Today Georgian territory 20% is occupied by Russian army, that’s what I’ve seen. Now let’s change topic and see good things.
Georgian cuisine and wine have evolved through the centuries, adapting traditions each era. One of the most unusual traditions of dining is (supra) or Georgian table, which is also way socializing with friends and family. The head of supra is known as Tamada. He also conducts the highly philosophical toasts and makes sure that everyone is enjoying themselves. Various historical regions of Georgia are known their particular dishes: for example, khinkali (meat dumplingns) from eastern mountainous Georgia and khachapuri (with cheese) mainly from imereti, samegrelo, adjara. In addition traditional Georgian dishes, the foods of other countries have been brought to Georgia by immigrants from Russia Greece and recently China.
Georgia is well known for its rich folklore unique traditional music, theatre, cinema and art. Georgia has a rich and vibrant musical tradition, primarily known for its early development of polyphony. Georgian dance is famous in whole world, dance ensembles (Sukhishvili, erisioni, Rustavi) they have many performance abroad every year.
Sport is really development in Georgia rugby, basketball, wrestling, football and other. Today we are not successful in the football especially national team but I hope we will be more strong. Our famous footballer was kakha kaladze he appearance in Ac Milan (2001 2010) years. Coucasus region he is single player who won UEFA Champions league .this is my article about Georgia.
