“Why 2019? There’s never a bad time to visit Georgia, but 2019 is looking an especially good year. New historical drama Gentleman Jack will broadcast on BBC 1 this spring, and the heroine Anne Lister lived in Poti and died in Kutaisi. Tbilisi’s effortlessly cool Hotel Stamba will be unveiling its glass-bottomed rooftop swimming pool, suspended above a five-storey atrium, and the award-winning Rooms brand - გენa member of Design Hotels -will be opening a new ski hotel at Bakuriani. Plan your trip to coincide with one of this year’s big events: Tbilisi Fashion Week is in April and October, the Black Sea Jazz Festival is in July, and in October you can join the Driving with Zoe classic car rally driving across the Caucasus from Batumi to Baku.”
