Из аэропорта в Сигнахи. По пути домашняя винодельня, потрясающие домашние сыры и хлеб, выпеченный в печи, виды Алазанской долины, прогулка по крепостным стенам и ночлег в небольшом гест хаусе в старинном доме.
From the picturesque Sighnaghi, our way passed through the Alazani Valley to Gudauri. Maybe we were led by the mythical griffin that brought grape seed to Georgia? We have enjoyed wine, vineyards, wine museum, tastings, more wine, and more wine! And even in Telavi, after the Mimino tree, we tasted wine and chacha again. Spectacular views of the Georgian military road and the Aragvi gorge accompanied us on the way to Gudauri. It was an incredible adventure!
Этот день начался со знаменитой Арки Дружбы народов. Совсем не запланировано мы согласились на параглидинг в Арагвийском ущелье. Это было незабываемо. А потом нас ждала живописная крепость Ананури, древняя столица Грузии - Мцхета и чертовски удобная и уютная Crown Plaza в Боржоми. It was a wonderful adventure!
Once you entered the hotel Crown Plaza in Borjomi, you don't wont to leave. Many consider it as only the best in Borjomi, and also the best in Georgia. But, try to pull yourself out of the SPA and soft bed, break away from your favorite book or the best HBO serial. You will be surprised by a cozy resort town with a notable cable car, primeval coniferous forest, a city park, a healing spring, cute souvenir shops, and a home restaurant, which "holds the brand" for decades. It was a wonderful adventure!
The morning began with the Nazuca tortilla. Their recipe is simple: raisins, vanilla, sugar, eggs, cornmeal and stone oven. Their taste is incredible. Then try tzitska wine, which should be drunk from a chinchilla - a jug with a narrow neck - and have a bite of pickled eckala. This day will surprise us with culinary discoveries. In the meantime, let's explore the stalactite cave of Prometheus and the fantastic beauty of the Martvili canyon. Let's first revive the history of the kingdom of Colchis, the tale of the Golden Fleece and the Argonauts. Nukri invited us to his home. Tablecloth set in the garden. The wine was chilled in the well, women were cooking the dough for khachapuri in the kitchen, and wooden chops were crackled on the brazier. It was an incredible adventure!
This day is dedicated to Southern Georgia. The city of Akhaltsikhe, the monastery of Safar We will visit the town of Vardzia, which is considered as a jewel of the queen of Tamara. Millions of stars always shine above the incredible high-altitude largest in Georgia Lake Paravan, where it is still cold and still beautiful. It was an incredible adventure!
This day in Tbilisi was unexpected and unusual. It started outside the city, with a horse farm on the Tbilisi Reservoir. It is impossible to understand and feel Georgia and Tbilisi without seeing a Georgian on a horse. From there, the path ran to the Bridge Peace, the cable car, the fortress of Narikala and the old town, the marvelous sulfur waterfall and the fig gorge and of course to the royal baths. After the rest, we walked the streets of the ancient city of the Meydan district, the streets of Sioni and the Church of Sion and ended the day with a beautiful boat ride through the Kura River. It was an incredible adventure!
