WORLD ABOUT GEORGIA

Gorgeous Georgia: Looking for a bargain city break? Tbilisi is terrific for a long weekend on the edge of Europe

 

 

• Once a Soviet republic, Georgia is an increasingly popular call for a mini-break

• The capital Tblisi is around four-and-a-half hours' flying time from London

• Highlights include Old Tblisi, which swells out on the banks of the River Kura

 

The former Soviet Socialist Republic of Georgia, now simply known as Georgia, is still an off-the-beaten-track destination with its own language, culture and alphabet. Tbilisi is its ancient capital and the country's largest city.
The name means 'warm', referring to the hot springs which feed the city's sulphur baths. Its strategic location at the crossroads of Asia and Europe has seen invasions by Mongols, Khazars, Turks and Arabs over the centuries. But these days peace reigns and Tbilisi is an extremely affordable and fascinating city break.
