Georgia on my . . . mined

Europe is a well-known and well-traversed part of the world.  We love it and can’t get enough of it. 

But, there are some places that are still bubbling under, just waiting for (or hiding from) the crowdsOne such place is Georgia –  in particular, Vardzia.

Vardzia-Khertvisi, comprising a vast territory in the upper reaches of the river Mtkvari basin, and spread over 18 km from Khertvisi (Medieval residence) to Vardzia (12th-13th cc. rock-cut monastery) is significant in many respects: unique natural conditions contributing to the specific microclimate and landscape, historical context and diversity of cultural heritage.

And it is being considered a candidate for a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Read more here. Courtesy of UNESCO.org
