The three best places to visit when exploring Georgia

The country’s official language is Georgian, and the small nation has a population of only 3.7 million. Boasting one of the most unique cultures in the world, Georgia is an up-and-coming tourist destination – and its warm locals also make this country a delightful place for visitors to explore.
