Georgia Flights GuideThe Republic of Georgia (not to be confused with the US state) is one of the countries located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia and can technically be considered, on a cultural level, partly in both continents. It is bordered by The Black Sea, as well as Russia, Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. A former part of the Soviet Union, Georgia succeeded in 1991 and became a country embroiled by civil conflicts, the most of which have been reconciled but have stifled the growth of the country since.
Georgia's capital and largest city is Tbilisi, home to around 1.5 million people, and located on the banks of the Kura River. It has been a lucrative trading post at the meeting point of Eastern and Western cultures for many centuries and is modernly known for its classical Freedom Square and Georgian National Museum. Technically speaking, the legislative capital is on the other side of the country, in Kutaisi, which is the third most populous city.
There are three major international airports in Georgia: Tbilisi International, David the Builder Kutaisi International, and Batumi International. Though all offer international commercial flights, Tbilisi International Airport is considered the largest and most important, located 17km from the capital city, and transporting roughly 2.2 million passengers annually. Georgia's climate can be divided into two major regions: West and East. The Western region is considered mostly humid subtropical, with high amounts of roughly uniform rainfall, with the highest levels being in the Autumn months. The eastern region is somewhat subtropical, but in many parts closer to continental, and is considered less humid and with lower levels of rainfall throughout the year.
