Getaway to Georgia with Ukrainian International Airlines

We are firm believers that traveling means living your life the fullest. As you may know from our previous posts, our trip to Georgia was extraordinary. People, food, places – all this was a part of an incredible journey that we were so happy to share with our followers. You can find all the photos we took while we were there in the Gallery section of this website. 

Winter is just around the corner which means you still have time to book a trip to Georgia to discover its’ truly astonishing sights. November is perfect for hiking and exploring mountain regions. If you want to explore old  cathedrals and vineyards – it’s best to go in spring while the weather is not too hot. To get to Georgia, you can catch a plane using the services of Ukrainian International Airlines (UIA).

That’s why we have partnered with Ukrainian International Airlines (UIA) to give you the most exceptional experience ever. UIA gives you a great opportunity to also explore Ukraine on the way to Georgia.

Flights from New York to Kiev is one of the popular destinations among customers of Ukraine International Airlines. Taking a flight PS 232 from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York with UIA, you arrive at Kiev Boryspil International Airport in less than 9 hours.

Although tickets to Kiev from New York can be bought at an affordable price, you can still save some more costs when making a reservation in advance. Thus, you can easily find New York Kiev cheap flights and have more money for your stay in Kiev or extend your budget for return tickets on PS 231 flight.

Kiev is not only a political, financial and cultural center of Ukraine. It is also one of the most visited cities among tourists from different countries. The greatest attractions of Kiev are perhaps its cathedrals and churches. The Holy Dormition Kiev-Caves Lavra, St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery, and Saint Sophia’s Cathedral are just some of “must-see” points in the city.

Kiev parks are also fascinating and will impress any tourist, but obviously they are most beautiful in spring and summer. Old streets of the city center are charming in any season of the year, and it is a real pleasure to walk from The Botanic Garden or the Golden Gate way across the Khreschatyk street, Maidan Nezalezhnosti, Andriivski Uzviz and down to Podil to see Dnipro river.

Ukrainian cuisine is one of the richest in the world. Many visitors fall in love with Kiev from the first trip.

What You Need to Know About Georgian Culture

Georgian culture is an exotic, mysterious and ancient culture stretching back for millennia. Elements of Anatolian, European, Persian, Arabian, Ottoman and Far Eastern cultures have influenced Georgia’s own ethnic identity resulting in one of the most unique and hospitable cultures in the world. Georgian culture is world renowned for being accommodating and tolerant. Traditionally, Georgian people consider guests to be a gift from God and their welcoming amiability is immediately apparent upon a traveler’s arrival.


Throughout history, pockets of isolation in the remote mountain areas have maintained much of their primeval peculiarity. These gems of antiquity offer the tourist a glimpse into the authentic Georgian condition.

One marvel at the uncanny combination of Georgia’s ancient and modern characteristics. Stark progress in recent years has spawned impressive infrastructural development while bolstering cultural and historic preservation making all that Georgian culture has to offer easily accessible.

Georgia’s strategic geographic location between Europe and Asia is one of the primary reasons for its diverse, yet distinct, cultural features. Its vector on the historic Silk Road enabled important trade connecting the north, south, east and west. This junction of commerce along with Georgia’s own bounty of resources combined to form a definitive amalgamation of cultures.

Recognition of Georgian culture has piqued international interest placing Georgia at the forefront of heritage tourism and research to become one of the great cultural legacies of the modern world.


Georgian monumental architecture, world famous polyphonic singing and traditional music, book miniature, rich spiritual and secular literature, colorful folk dances and ballet, theatre and cinema, jewelry, metal works, enamels, and paintings all bear trademark qualities of this ancient culture.


The period between the eleventh and twelfth centuries was the Renaissance of the Georgian state when monks in academies, churches, and monasteries put forward new humanistic ideas. Even during the Middle Ages, philosophy and historiography, theology and law, poetry and art, all flourished in Georgia.

Architecture, astronomy, geography and other disciplines of knowledge were being developed. Applied art from this period forward, especially jewelry manufacturing and the art of metallurgy (chasing), still prospers today.


Blossoming of secular culture occurred in the nineteenth century when Georgian writers and artists, influenced by European trends, enriched the treasury of national art. Two of the most significant entries in the treasury of spiritual Georgian culture are the traditions of musical and dancing folklore.

Today, Georgian culture is richer than ever. For any traveler seeking a completely original destination with diverse cultural influence, Georgia is an accessible and affordable choice.
