Georgia, situated at the dividing line of Asia and Europe, is an ancient country of rugged mountains and very determined people.

Annexed by Russia in 1801, it regained its sovereignty in 1918. It then suffered through 70 years of Communist rule and suppression, finally declaring its independence from Russia in 1991.

The people here say they "Never Gave Up," and those people now have their long-desired freedom.

Traditionally an agricultural land - quite famous for it's wines - tourism is on front-burner in Georgia as international travel has increased - especially along the Black Sea coastal areas.
