About Georgia


Location: Georgia is situated in the western and central parts of Trans-Caucasia between the Black and Caspian Seas, on the crossroad of the ancient Silk Road that connected Asia to Europe. Georgia shares its northern border with the Russian Federation, the south-east border with Azerbaijan; in the south it borders Armenia and Turkey, while the Black Sea makes the western limits of the country, with the coastal line of the country about 315 km. Seaports at the Black Sea connect Georgia with Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey; Bosporus and Dardanelle straights connect the country with the Mediterranean region, and the river Danube links it with Central and Eastern Europe.
