LOCATION AND SIGHTSEEING TOURS

Georgia is the ancient country situated between Black and Caspian seas, the Caucasus and Turkey. It is the country of the Golden Fleece, the myth of Argonauts, Jason and Medea, and Prometheus, chained to the Caucasus mountains. Tbilisi - capital of Georgia - has more than 1 million in habitant. It is situated some 100-150 km to the south of main Caucasus ridge, in the beautiful valley of the river Mtkvari, surrounded by the green slopes of the Caucasus spurs. The city has a long (1500 year old) history and abounds in historical and cultural memorials. Georgia is famous for its high quality wines, exquisite cuisine and cordial hospitality.

The main site of the Symposium, Tbilisi State University, is the chief centre of education in the country, and has several outstanding scholars in science, art and politics among its graduates.

During the School there will be an excursion over the famous Georgian Military Road, which leads us through the ancient capital of Georgia - Mtskheta, with its abundant architectural and historical monuments - and which brings us across the main ridge of the Caucasus by the Cross Pass. The destination of the envisaged trip is the mountain resort Kazbegi with its Trinity Church situated on the top of high peak facing the second mountain (after Elbrus), the peak of the Caucasus - Mkinvarcveri (Glacier - mountain).

TRAVEL INFORMATION

Tbilisi can only be reached by air. If there are no direct trip between your point of departure and Tbilisi, the most convenient connections are via Istambul, Frankfurt or Moscow.
