Actually, spoken Georgian is one of the unique languages with rare sounds that are rather hard to pronounce. The name of the country, Georgia is linked with St George.

Georgia was the second country in the world after Armenia to adopt Christianity as a state religion. The church always had authority in the country and over the centuries it was the greatest force that kept the nationality and traditions.

As an ancient religious country, important attractions are medieval churches and monasteries. The religious center of Georgia is Mtskheta with its monasteries. Besides of Christian monasteries, there are important pre-Christian monuments that are part of the history of Georgia. One of the important sights to be visited is the cave town of Uplistsikhe on a hill. It is one of the oldest settlements of the Caucasus and proof of the civilization that was living here over thousands of years. The lower area and the caves are connected with the upper layer by a tunnel. There is an ancient basilica at the central part of the town that was built later.
