Georgia offers a tremendous variety of dramatic, unspoilt scenery. Located in Eastern Europe, Georgia sits along the coast of the Black Sea. It is a rather mountainous country and is home to some of Europe's highest mountain peaks. Modern archaeological evidence suggests that Georgia is the oldest wine-making country in the world, with some wine samples dating back to 6,000 years BC. In testament to this rich heritage, Georgia's cities and countryside are complete with medieval churches, several of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
