“I didn’t allocate Svaneti, so I didn’t see Georgia!” (K. Gamsakhurdia)

Svaneti is the land of a thousand towers and the Golden Fleece … History, culture and delicious food … The beautiful peaks of the Caucasus: Shkhara, Ushba, Tetnuldi, Laila, Zhanga, Shkhalda, etc.

Svaneti is a historical region in Western Georgia, located on the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus, in the upper reaches of the Inguri and Tskhenistskali rivers. The Svans achieved particular power in the last centuries BC. e. and in the first centuries BC e., after the fall of the Kingdom of Colchis.

As academician N. Marr wrote: “So many masterpieces of Georgian Christian literature and art have been preserved in Svania that, if not for them, other valuable pages of the history of Georgian culture would have disappeared … One would think that Svania was a special refuge for a warehouse in it inaccessible vaults and to save those cultural property that was threatened with death during the devastating invasions of all world conquerors. However, Svan collections of art and writing of character are not such an accidental delivery. Svans are involved in this production as its creators; it is connected with the local organization of the same feudal Christianity and with the public interests of the Svan noble class.”
