Caucasus: Georgia & TbilisiOrdinær pris 179,00 kr
Georgia, the country and not the American state, is a very nice, but threatened country of great historical importance. Bordered on the west by the Black Sea, on the north by Russia, and on the east by Azerbaijan, and with an ill-defined border with Turkey on the west, Georgians must be nimble to retain their independence. Only with neighbouring Armenia does Georgia enjoy relatively good relations. Historically, Georgia is a Christian enclave that dates back to the earliest days of Christianity, and its many churches are major touristic attraction.
This map portrays the country as accurately as is possible, showing the expanding network of motorways, major churches, castles, touristic sites, and regrettably, areas of contention with both Russia and Azerbaijan. The reverse side shows a full-sized city map of Tbilisi, the capital. This is the first time that the city has been portrayed in such detail. Attractions include the Narikala Fortress, the cathedral, the old town centre, and the Dry Bridge Market (now a flea market, but in Soviet times a black market). The city lies beside the Kura River, in a valley enclosed by Mtatsminda Mountain, which has two cable cars to its summit, which is now a recreational theme park. The city’s two metro lines are also a good way to travel around the city.
