Winter in Georgia Where to Go On Holidays and Weekdays
What interesting places can be seen in Georgia in the winter? Weather certainly imposes restrictions. Some regions are closed until spring, you can still go somewhere, but it will not bring joy. Well, is there only skiers? Of course not! We will tell you how to plan an interesting, comfortable and memorable holiday in Georgia.
New Year’s holidays
Let’s start with the obvious. New Year’s holidays – the most popular period of winter holidays. Soul asks for holidays fun and there are weekends at work. Celebrating holidays in Georgia with fun and a twinkle is a great option for a trip. There are lots of Christmas tours – choose and fly. VIP-tours for Christmas are especially popular. For a week you will have time not only to walk around the capital, play in the best casinos of Tbilisi, but also to see the country with a guide.
It would be a crime to skip Georgia’s ski resorts, of course if you like this sport. Pay special attention to Gudauri, nowadays there is the best ski resort in Georgia. Freeriders will also appreciate Tetnuldi (Mestia), and with children it is better to go to Bakuriani.
Sights of Tbilisi
A separate song about the beauty of Tbilisi. The capital is good at any time of the year and in any weather. You just need to choose the right leisure from the whole variety. If the weather is good – walk around the city. The most interesting part is Tbilisi. Romantic narrow streets lined with pavement. Narikala fortress, with the walls which offers a great city’s view. Ancient temples, sulfur baths, theater Gabriadze – it’s all here.
Be sure to take a look at the Dry Bridge – a colorful flea market. Here you can buy souvenirs and just stare and nostalgic. You also need to have a funicular’s ride to Mount Mtatsminda and gobble up a couple of donuts in a local restaurant.
What if the weather is not lucky? Do not worry – Tbilisi has something to offer you. Museums, theaters, cozy cafes, elegant casinos and wine bars. It will not be boring.
Casino in Tbilisi
Today casino in Tbilisi is an independent destination for recreation. Many tour operators offer casino tours. But also junket can be ordered directly in gambling houses for any winter days. By the way, it will be easier and cheaper, plus, you will know exactly what you will get for the price of purchased chips.
One of the best places is Shangri La Tbilisi, a gambling house that has been operating for many years here. This is a VIP level unit run by Michael Boettcher’s Storm International. The holding has more than 25 years of experience in the gambling business, so Shangri La offers everything at the highest possible level. Even the design of the building and the interiors impresses with luxury and elegance. Here are all the classic games, lots of slots, has its own restaurant and concert stage. During the holidays, the casino prepares a show with guest stars and live music. Separate positive moment – prize draws, said Darren Keane, Shangri La CEO.
If you hit the casino on the lottery day and made at least one bet, you have every chance to go home with a jackpot or a solid prize, right up to the car.
Where to go outside of Tbilisi in winter?
Now, about the most interesting, places where you can travel to in winter in Georgia, not to sit all the time in the capital. Tbilisi is a very beautiful city, but surrounding area is worth visiting too. Travelers are usually delighted with the Alazani Valley, the environs of Kutaisi, the coast, partly Javakhetia and the routes to Gudauri and Mestia. The rest is high mountains, dirt roads, passes and a pause until spring.
