Without a doubt, CNN's famous travel series will give you the most truthful advice on which you can count on .

That is why if they recommend you 10 of the dreamiest places in Georgia, you should definitely believe it.

"Georgia may be small in size, but it still packs an astounding geographical punch."-writes CNN and goes on listing 10 of the most stunning places in Georgia. 

Mutso

Mutso, a fortified town spread over three towering crags on the border with
Chechnya, was northern Georgia's most impregnable stronghold throughout the Middle Ages, but it was essentially abandoned in the 20th century due to water shortages and crumbling infrastructure.

Ushguli

Ushguli is one of the highest continually inhabited settlements in Europe at an elevation of 6,900 feet.

Hidden deep in the Caucasian wilderness and snowbound for around eight months of the year, its isolation allowed it to preserve its millennium-old culture distinguished by bareback horse racing, animist rituals, and an unwritten 4,000-year-old language.

Vardzia

Despite its fascinating history and sheer prettiness, most tourists don't make it to Vardzia, the nine-tiered cave complex rising above the parched foothills of Samtskhe-Javakheti.

This is mainly due to the nauseous five-hour drive from Tbilisi (or one-hour trek from the closest market town, Akhaltsikhe) visitors must undertake to reach it.

But those who do brave the journey are rewarded with one of Georgia's most remarkable sights: an entire mountainside pocked with man-made caves inviting hours of exploration.


Gelati Monastery

Step into the Cathedral of the Virgin at Gelati Monastery, six miles north of Kutaisi, and you're immediately engulfed in a sea of technicolor Byzantine-style frescoes erupting from the lowest stone baseboard to the highest reaches of the conical dome.

Gergeti Trinity Church

Having graced the covers of countless guides and travel magazines, Gergeti Trinity Church has long evoked "oohs" and "aahs" thanks to its dramatic hilltop position in the shadow of Mount Kazbek, Europe's fifth-highest summit.
