Conveniently close, yet tantalisingly different, Georgia lies between Turkey and Russia on the shores of the Black Sea. With an intricate history confounded by its position on the crossroads between Europe and Asia, there’s a fascinating cultural heritage to uncover. Its well-read population are famed for their hospitality and the food combines an exotic blend of flavours.
