Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #1: Orbeliani Baths, Tbilisi

Tbilisi is the capital of Georgia, and one of our favorite capitals in the world! One of our favorite areas of the capital is the bath area. The whole zone itself is unique because it is heated naturally, and therefore has thermal waters.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #7: Yellow Fields of Kutaisi

Driving around Kutaisi we found some beautiful nature, and one of our favorites were the large fields of yellow flowers. You can find them quite often while driving in the region. Some may be private, but there are also ones that you can find that are open to visit by making a quick stop on the side of the road.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #8: Martivili Canyon

If you're a waterfall lover then you will really love Martivili Canyon. This is another great area of nature found outside of Kutaisi, and can be visited for a couple hour tour, or by spending a full day.

We definitely recommend hiring a local, as we wouldn't have been able to find nearly half of the spots on our own.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #10: Ali & Nino Statue, Batumi

While our favorite spots in Georgia were normally a part of nature, we couldn't help but appreciate some of the beautiful works of art we found.

Ali & Nino is a statue that is in the heart of Batumi, right along the seaside. The work features two silver humans, that move towards one another until they become one. Head here later in the day at 7:00 and you'll be able to also see a spectacular light show!

The statue is in a public area, and is completely free of charge to appreciate.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #11: Hot Sulfur Spring in Jikha

If you're planning on visiting Batumi, and want a place to relax, then this is the spot for you. The sulfur springs are naturally heated thermal waters, sourced from a steamy waterfall. It is located right next to a river, so you can enjoy the hot waters of the spring, and the fresh cool waters of the river.

Locals also use the rocks in the area to create natural jacuzzis that you can relax in. There isn't an official lot or signs, but a local police officer was able to show us the way, and we parked just outside. The spring is free of charge to enjoy, so you can take advantage of the nature that the area provides.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #12: Vardzia Caves

This is one of the unique spots in Georgia that is a bit off the beaten path. We decided to take a detour on our route from Batumi to Tbilisi, (instead of going via Kutaisi) just to visit here, and we really found it to really be worth it. Not only is it a unique point of interest, but the drive there was simply stunning.

Vardzia Caves are what was once a medieval town that was completely habitated in hundreds of caves built into the side of a mountain. Tickets are needed to enter the site for 15 GEL, and you can either hike up there, or take a small tram to cut out half of the walk (about 15 minutes). We took the tram on the way there, but really didn't feel it was worth it.

The caves are open daily from 10 am to 5 pm and have some vendors on site selling snacks and souvenirs.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #13: The Town of Ushguli

Ushguli was hands down our favorite of all of the great places to visit in Georgia. This small village is the highest standing settlement in all of Europe, and will make you feel like you've stepped back in time.

Roam the small streets, go on a trek through the mountains, or climb the tower pictured below for one of the most stunning views you'll ever witness.

Ushguli is not the easiest to reach, but it is truly worth the effort. We rented a car, and even with a 4x4 had to be extremely careful around the bumpy and windy roads that lead there. If you'd like to get there without a car, you can reach there by taking a bus from the city of Mestia, the capital of the Svaneti region.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #15: Georgia- Russia Friendship Monument

The Georgia- Russia Friendship was built in 1983 to commemorate the Treaty of Georgievsk Monument, and the ongoing friendship between Soviet Georgia and Soviet Russia.

The monument is covered in colorful paintings, and has stunning views of the mountains around it. It's the perfect spot to stop on the way to Kazbegi, and also is popular for paragliding.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #17: Hiking Trails From Juta

The town of Juta is a tiny village lying outside the capital of Kazbegi, another stunning area in the mountains. You won't find much in the town itself, but it is the gateway to one of the most beautiful hikes that we did in Georgia.

The Chaukhi trail starts from the Fifth Season Hotel, and has several trails. The one we chose was a 2 hour out and back trail that took us to a waterfall, lakes, the cutest A-frame bar, and gorgeous snow-capped mountains. You can also opt to do a full day trek leading to another beautiful lake, and hiking throughout the mountains.

One thing to keep in mind is that the most popular time to visit is in summer. We went in October, and almost everything in the area was already closed for the season (restaurants and hotels), and were not set to reopen until the spring time.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #18: Bidara Trivertines, Kazbegi

We love finding unique landscapes, and really loved this salty one on route to Kazbegi. The hardened cascades look like frozen waterfalls, but are in fact mineral deposits! Visit here by simply stopping off the side of the road and admiring them for free.

Unique Places to Visit in Georgia #19: Chalet Shaori

This is one of the most unique accommodations that we have ever seen! The tiny chalet is floating in the middle of the stunning Chaori reserve, allowing you to have a relaxing or romantic getaway. Surrounded by snowcapped mountains and turquoise waters, this is definitely a place you'll want to add to your bucket list.
