Top Georgian resorts to visit this summer
Summer has come and many of us are already thinking about where to spend holidays. Tourists, especially newcomers who have not explored Georgia yet, wonder which places to visit. So here we offer the list of Georgia’s some of the most notable mountain and seaside resorts, where one can chill out, sightsee and entertain.

Georgia’s western Adjara region and its coasts


Western Georgian region of Adjara stands out among other parts of the country with its landscape, climate, culture and
cuisine. The area becomes especially attractive both for the foreigners and locals during summer. The subtropical climate, combination of sea and mountains and numerous beaches make for perfect conditions to have a vacation in Adjara. Among many resorts, we advise you to take a rest in Batumi or Kvariati.

Batumi

Batumi – a city frequently called the Gem of the Black Sea. It owes much of its current look to efforts of European architects in the beginning of 20th century, but boasts many new architectural novelties alongside old ones as well.

Kvariati

Kvariati is another popular seaside resort at Black Sea coast. Kvariati offers a wonderful mix of sea and mountains to its visitors. While swimming in crystal clear water one can enjoy an amazing view of emerald mountains. During the summer season, many bungalows, café-bars and clubs function, allowing visitors to enjoy nightlife as well.

Georgia’s mountain resorts

Svaneti

Way up in the Caucasus Mountains around 2,200 meters above sea level, this small village is Europe's highest continuously inhabited settlement.Sitting at the foot of Mount Shkhara, Georgia's highest point, Ushguli is famous for the medieval defensive towers connected to each house.The main town of Mestia is on its way to becoming the Georgian equivalent of a Swiss resort but Ushguli has been saved by its poor transport routes, which have helped preserve the village's timeless feel.Ushguli and the region of Upper Svaneti are classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Tusheti and Khevsureti

The remote regions of Khevsureti and Tusheti in the Caucasus Mountains are home to spectacular medieval villages with small communities that still retain their ancient pagan traditions.The roads going up here are an adrenaline rush in themselves. The ruined fortress of Mutso and the settlement of Shatili in Khevsureti look like something described by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Tusheti is full of old towers, churches, villages and spectacular mountain scenery with wild flowers and trees. The infrastructure is gradually developing and local guest houses and hotels are awaiting their guests. Tusheti has numerous hiking trails and the locals are known for their generous mountain hospitality.

Finally, there is Kakheti, the eastern region of Georgia famous for producing wine from a variety of grapes. Kakheti is also rich in history. Sighnaghi, the region’s most prominent town, is known in Georgia as the “city of love”, with many couples coming here to marry due to the romantic atmosphere. Kakheti boasts its beautiful landscapes, vineyards, a warm, Mediterranean climate, the incredible monastery complex of Davit Gareja, a desert, many beautiful churches, castles, waterfalls and lakes. Kakhetian people are very friendly and openhearted. If you visit this region, you will most certainly have an unforgettable time.
