In the vicinity of the capital, Tbilisi, there is a great place to chill out in every season of the year called Kojori forest. It is one of the most popular resorts in Georgia where fresh air and green space is guaranteed. When the snow covers the forest, Kojori becomes so mystical that you just have to observe it.

Tbilisi

And, lastly, if you are in Georgia, Tbilisi should be the first place to visit. In winter, when Christmas and New Year’s decorations are installed and the main Christmas tree is lit up, the festive atmosphere is felt in every part of the capital. As Tbilisi is divided into New and Old Tbilisi, the winter illuminations bring particular beauty into both parts.
