Borjomi is a town in the middle of Georgia and known as the relaxation and health region of the country, due the outstanding fresh air, numerous thermal spas and healthy mineral waters!
Khashuri is a small town on route to Borjomi and it sells a variety of art, crafts, food and drink on the road side, which is a common sight in Georgia. The unique and ‘linked’ sight is the hundreds of hammocks and deckchairs for sale, which gives an introduction to what the region is famous for!
A leisurely walk through the Rabati Complex in Jakeli, is an informative and interesting way to spend several hours. It was originally built in the 9th century and is spread over 7 hectares of land. Its importance was signified by its renovation in 2012 and it now contains a fortress, trading centre, Catholic, Armenian and Greek Churches. There is also a unique Mosque, that was once a Christian Church and then converted afterwards, so it has architecture belonging to both religions. Also inside the complex is a museum that does not only have many artefacts from that region, but a lot of items from Georgian history, culture and life style. It has views of the nearby hills and countryside, gifts shops, cafe, restaurant and tourist information centre, so there are plenty of things to do whilst there.
Borjomi is the main town in the region and famous as a health resort, due to the fresh air and mineral waters and thermal Spa’s. Georgian people and visitors from abroad go there for a day or even stay for longer periods to take advantage of the health benefits there. Some do it as just a relaxing break, but many do it for health reasons, as the fresh air helps with chest complaints and breathing problems.
The mineral water from Borjomi is not only drunk in Georgia, but bottled and drunk around the world. It comes from natural underground springs, that have been there for hundreds of years. It helps with any digestive complaints and bowel problems. The taste is harsh at first, but that is only because people are used to drinking manufactured or treated water, no matter how natural they are labelled to be? This comes up straight from spring beneath into the mouth, thus having many natural and unfiltered minerals in it. People have been drinking from this same spot for decades and they either fill up bottles for themselves or take to ill friends or relatives.
The main water supply comes from taps under a canopied area in Borjomi Park. It is not only a landmark, but a tourist attraction too, as it the oldest of its kind in the whole country. The park itself is an attraction, as it has an amusement area, seating, feature grassed sections, play areas, cafes and restaurants. There is a cable car that takes people from adjacent to the park to the hills above, which provides amazing views of Borjomi town, the park and nearby mountains and valleys. There is even a Ferris Wheel at the top, so even further heights can be reached?
The town itself has many hotels, bars, restaurants and shops, plus Thermal Spa venues, so it a great place to spend the day or even over night.
The region has great rolling valleys and winding roads through mountain ranges, so just getting to and from there is exciting. During this journey there are many towers and castles to be seen, which were a used as warnings against invaders. I fire would be lit at the top of the first one, which would trigger off similar fires all the way to the major city and towns, so they could prepare defences. Some of them have secret tunnels too, so that after lighting the fires and knowing the invaders would storm the building, they would crawl down these escape routes, which would be some 1,500 metres away, thus a route to safety.
Borjomi-Kharagauli Natural Park is 85,000 hectares of spectacular scenery, which can be viewed and enjoyed by; walking, cycling, horse riding, tours or just by having a relaxing picnic?
This region is also very popular for fishing, so fish can be caught, cooked and eaten or any of those options? This is all done with the backdrop of stunning mountain ranges, a fisherman’s dream.
There are so many cattle in this area, it is unlikely a journey would not be interrupted by a herd slowly crossing the road or even pausing in the middle for a while. Cars and lorries can beeb there horns as much as they want, but these creatures live here, everyone else is just passing through!! It is a lovely reminder of the fact the world is changing rapidly, but nature and natural resources must still be protected and allowed to be just that, ‘natural’!
Many crops are grown in this area, but the most popular is the potato. They grow so much here that there is enough to export to nearby countries, who pass them off as being home grown?
Traditional food is important in Georgian life and one of the most famous dishes is Khinkali which are juicy meat dumplings. They are hold at the ‘gathered end’ of the dumpling and after the first bite is taken, the juices are drunk. The rest is then eaten, leaving just the small think ‘gathered end’ which is important, as it shows how many the diner has had?. Khachapuri is also popular, which a cheese bread (pizza looking) and then there is the oven baked bread, Shotis Puri, which has its own unique shape!
Tori in Akhalda is a Spa, Fishing Resort, Cafe, Bar and Restaurant (that serves all these traditional dishes) and is a great place to relax in so many different ways? Highly recommended is the Thermal Spa treatments, which allegedly add a year on your life for each weekend of treatment, thus immortality can be achieved?. Maybe not, but these waters definitely do have health benefits and people travel from far and wide to bathe in them. There are plans to turn this venue into a large Health Spa and Sports Complex, as it already has the Baths, Fishing, Cafe and Restaurant. There are opportunities to investors in this project, so contact NDN for more information or just follow its progress?
There is also the Chitakhevi Monastery of St George or The Green Monastery as it is known, due to it being built with green coloured stone. It was built between the 9th and 10th century and is set in an idiotic location.
At the rear of this resort is a wooded area, where legend has, is inhabited by Wild Georgian Women. It actually dates back to a battle that took place there with Mongol invaders, who recorded that they would not enter this forest region as every time time they did, they would be beaten back by an army of fierce fighting women?
The women of Georgia have always played a large part in its history and culture and are a major part of all Bulgarian Dancing Shows. Sukhishvilebi Georgian Dance Troop are international renown and perform to sold out audiences worldwide (if there is ever an opportunity of seeing them, take it). Local traditional dance troops perform regularly throughout the country, where the women have a grace and style to behold and the men have an energy that excites all that watch!
This country has so many interesting things to see, do and experience, it is impossible to achieve it without expert knowledge, so visitors are advised to do it with an official Tour Company!
Also consider a visit to Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, which has amazing buildings, structures and architecture. It is more of a busy European city with; shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, a total contrast to Borjomi.
Another destination to consider is Kakheti, which is the Wine Region of Georgia. It has far more than just wine though, it is is a beautiful territory throughout. There are many venues where people can learn about the history, culture and lifestyle of the country and get involved in activities too.
