Learn some words
The Georgian language is beautiful, but it is considered one of the most difficult languages in the world. People tend to stick to their language, so it is desirable that you learn some phrases that help you while traveling in the country. Including: gamrajoba (hello), thank you very much (didi madloba), no (ara). The Georgians will appreciate that you made this effort and you will definitely get smiles.
Landmarks to be visited
The list may be very long, but we will try to shorten it as possible! We start with ancient Tbilisi and tour the streets there especially the old cathedrals including Sioni Cathedral. Also among the main features is Narikala Castle, where the statue of “Mother Georgia”, which is a symbol of the country, must also visit the Rike Park and the Peace Bridge. Head to Rustaveli Avenue, its architecture, and don’t forget to shop on the open market near Dry Dry Bridge … and many other attractions awaiting you to explore.
