Sakartvelo is my home country and I‘m very happy and proud that I was born and raised up here.

It’s a very small but country with a big heart.

Population is around 4 millions people, which 1/3 prefer to live in capital – Tbilisi.

Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe.

It is bounded to the west by the Black Sea ,to the north by Russia ,to the south by Turkey and Armenia and to the southeast by Azerbaijan.

Georgia is one of the 15 republics of the formerly USSR.

After break up the Soviet Union (1991) it became independent.

There are a lot of refugees because of the civil war(1992) and war with Russia(2008)

We lost our paradise parts of country ( Abkhazia and South Ossetia)..

Since the war, breakaway regions are under Russian occupation, but legally they are still part of Georgia.

Russia recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent countries.

People in Georgia are very traditional.

We have a lots of tradition holidays, especially religious holidays in different part of Georgia.

About 80% of the population are Orthodox .

Georgia is something special for me and it’s always hard to explain with words .

It’s a biggest love, pain and happiness at the same time, fresh air and new sounds, real people with real stories around, friends and family album ,red wine, mountains and waves, beautiful dance and smell of the past ,magic …It’s a dreamland.

I Am Georgia” is my life project .
