Georgia and its soviet heritage

Georgia and its soviet heritage
MyCaucasus

We set out a search for Georgia's Soviet heritage. Stalin and his typical architecture, spend the night in a former Soviet textile factory and bathe in the same baths that the Soviet Communist elite used for recreation. In addition to a lot of reference to the USSR, the tour also gives you a good overview of present-day Georgia. Besides Tbilisi we discover five other regions of Georgia: Shida Kartli, Imereti, Samegrelo, Kvemo Kartli and Kakheti.

We had a great group. I still have contact with all six. We have already agreed that we will come back next year. Then it will be a wine tour through Kakheti.

I will never forget our trip through the mountains of Tusheti. The landscape was unique, though the absolute highlights were the warm encounters with the locals.
