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.
