Practical Information while traveling to Georgia
Kamila Napora, a traveler from Poland has visited Georgia several times. She has a blog sharing her experience with other travelers. One of the blogs has been devoted to 15 reasons why one should visit Georgia and practical information when traveling to Georgia.

Kamila was impressed with Georgia especially its diverse landscape. Georgia, a small country can offer tourists Black sea beaches, Caucasus Mountains, incredible caves and green valleys. Meanwhile, she recommends tourist to taste traditional Georgian dishes that are one
of the most delicious foods found in the world. Kamila also visited Georgia’s abandoned spa dating back to the Soviet era and believes that those who are interested in abandoned places, Tskaltubo sanatoriums are a must-see venue.

If you are planning to visit Georgia, first look at the practical information provided by the blogger. In order to get around the country, Kamila suggests using mini-buses so-called Marshutkas. Although sometimes they are not very comfortable, they are fast and cheap. Marshrutkas can be found on two major stations: Didube Station (for the country’s north destinations) and Samgori station for Kakheti (Georgia’s eastern region).

What are the must-see places in Georgia offered by Kamila? First of all, Kamila offers tourists to go around the capital especially the old part of Tbilisi. Then travel to mountainous region Svaneti and Kazbegi Mountain with its breathtaking Gergeti Trinity church as well as the historic city Mtskheta near the capital. Georgia has various cave cities David Gareja, Uplistsikhe and Vardzia carrying interesting histories. Georgia’s wine region Kakheti and spa town Borjomi should also be experienced by visitors in Georgia. Kutaisi, the second biggest city with the abandoned Tskaltubo spa, beautiful monasteries, caves, and Okatse canyon can offer one of the best adventures to travelers. Those who love the sun and the sea should head to the Black Sea resort Batumi.

As for the language in Georgia, Georgians have their own language and alphabet. Georgian scripts are among the only 14 existing scripts worldwide. Georgian scripts include three writing systems: Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri, and Mkhedruli. The three systems show three levels of development of the Georgian alphabet. Travelers can get around the country with English but Russian is more doable with the older generation.

“It’s also good to know few Georgian words, that always brings a smile on people’s faces. Those I use most often are didi madloba (thank you) and gamarjoba (hello) – don’t confuse it with “gaumarjos” (cheers) – I did it once at Kutaisi airport and got friendly laughs from the border officer in return.” – says Kamila in her blog.
