5 Must Dos in the Republic of Georgia
5 MUST DOS IN THE REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA
1.Admire the brilliant frescoes of Georgian saints and kings in the 900-year-old Cathedral of the Virgin at the monastery of Gelati near Kutaisi.
2. Hike to Gergeti Trinity Church, a 90-minute walk from Kazbegi township. The church sits dramatically on a ridge silhouetted against the massive bulk of Mount Kazbek.
3. Sample khachapuri, the national fast food, a kind of flatbread stuffed with cheese, frequently seen on the dinner table.
4.Spend a night at the Tbilisi Mariott Hotel, cossetted in luxury. There are two Mariotts in the capital but on Rustavelli Avenue is the deluxe version.
5.Visit Svaneti, a severe and potent region in Georgia’s mountainous north-west where stone towers protect the villagers against avalanches, invaders and one another, since blood feuds have traditionally been a major cause of death.
