Experience the Magic of Autumnal Georgia

Autumn in Georgia is a special time for nature, the people of this country, and for travelers. On one hand, it is a well-deserved rest after a hot summer, when the weather is hot and sunny all the time, on the other – time for work: moving cattle from the mountain regions to Kakheti, gathering grapes, filling new kvevri and barrels with wine, preparing for winter.

October and November are perfect for hiking and exploring mountain regions. Of course, they are beautiful anytime, but autumn slowly brings more and more colors into this palette. Traditional purple and golden are just few of them!

You also might have read about those Most Dangerous and Challenging Roads Which Are Accessible Only In Summer. Like, the roads to Tusheti, Khevsureti, and Svaneti, for example.

But sometimes, if you are lucky with the weather (it means, autumn is dry), you can still go to Tusheti in September. Khevsureti is also available in October for sure, and Kazbegi is waiting for you till the late autumn.

Traditionally at the end of October, on the weekend, Tbilisi celebrates the city’s day called Tbilisoba. It attracts people from many regions, who bring there the products of harvest.

Theatre, folk dance and song performances are held on the streets of the old town; souvenirs and different types of food are sold all around; good mood and the cheerful vibe is pulsating in people! A great reason to undertake at least a weekend trip to Georgia.

To do so, you can catch a plane using the services of Ukrainian International Airlines (UIA).

Ukrainian International Airlines (UIA) gives you a great opportunity to explore Ukraine on the way to Georgia. We strongly recommend the stopover in Kiev (the beautiful capital of Ukraine). Filled with theaters, museums, religious sites, modern buildings and ancient ruins, the city of Kiev is the center of Ukrainian culture. The Monastery of the Caves, founded in 1015, and Saint Sophia Cathedral, founded in 1037, are both World Heritage Sites. The Museum of the Great Patriotic War, topped by the massive Motherland Statue, provides gorgeous views of the city below.

You can find all the information on the UIA website or you can contact us at Panorama Travel website by clicking these links.


The Journey Begins

Georgia is a small country situated on the crossroad of Europe and Asia. From the south-east it has a border with Azerbaijan, from the south – with Armenia and Turkey, from the north – with Russia. The western part of Georgia is washed by the Black Sea. Tbilisi is a capital of Georgia founded in the fifth century.

Population of the country with total area of 69 700 square kilometers is 3 720 000 people. It is amazing but on this small land there are 26060 rivers and over 40 protected areas. That is why the vast part of the country is occupied by untouched nature.

Amazing nature and the diversity of this country was the source of inspiration for a lot of writers and poets. Here we have everything that the traveler can only dream about: mountains of eternal snow, mountain lakes, alpine meadows, canyon rivers full of flowers and fruit, palm coasts, natural canyons, ancient caves, mineral waters and sulfur water pools – thus this place is indeed a heaven on Earth!

Nothing tells you more about the spirit and culture of a country than its cuisine. Georgian national dishes are amongst the best in the world for their diversity and taste. Each historical province of the country has its own distinct culinary tradition that was refining for centuries. Especially distinguished and unique are Imeretian, Megrelian and Kakhetian cuisines.

While meat plays an important part in Georgian cuisine, very close attention is also paid to the locally produced vegetables, fruit and greens. Traditional dishes made of their accurate combination first attract you, then astonish you and eventually it all ends with gastronomic shock.

Hectares of vineyards, Rtveli (Georgian harvesting) accompanied with polyphonic singing and clay vessels (Kvevri) full of wine – this is Georgia. Wine is everything here – everyone loves it. Every family will treat you with their own wine with great pleasure and pride. Vineyard is a sacred place for Georgians and winemaking – our beloved tradition. Country with population around 3.5 million, yearly produces approximately 150 million liters of wine.

Good holiday, first and foremost, means a safe holiday. If you intend to travel to Georgia, relax about safety issues. According to Numbeo 2016 report, Georgia is the safest country in Europe and 6th in the world following South Korea, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
You will feel complete safety while traveling around the country. Here people say that the guest is the gift from God, so Georgians will do their best to treat you with great hospitality. Friendly Georgians are always willing to assist you. You won’t need to take extra care of your pocket and handbag. Relax, and enjoy your precious time in this beautiful country.
So be calm, relax and enjoy all the best things this country has to offer. We are waiting for you!
