Georgia - The Most Beautiful Country In The World

Updated: 13 September, 2022 seen 23,743

The other day I was reading an article in which the head of the World Tourism Organization Claimed - Georgia is the most beautiful country in the world.

Well, I can ONLY agree with the words from the head of WTO, Mr. Taleb Rifai, and to add my 50 cents  I have listed 32 places you should visit to make the most from your trip to Georgia. 

Georgian nature, culture and people make this country the most beautiful in the world,

said UN Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai, the World Tourism Organization. Source: Глава Всемирной туристской организации: Грузия – самая красивая страна в мире
