Travel & Tourist Agencies[edit]

I removed these from the main page as I don't believe it meets our goals. Looks like another way to add external links.

Images[edit]

I added images by Mr Marko Petrovic, very talented photographer and he gave permission to use his photos on Wikitravel article Georgia. I copied his email and attached to each image in the Wikitravel shared page. Please see description there.

Trans-Caucasus Itinerary[edit]

I am interested in assisting in creating a 12-15 day trans-Caucasus itinerary with Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia. Would anyone be interested in assisting me with this? Cupcakecommander 02:51, 31 July 2007 (EDT)


Information about Russia-Georgia war[edit]

Russian troops are only in Samegrelo in Northwest Georgia (near Abkhasia) and they are doing nothing in thear , CAN WE REMOVE WARNING?

- I'm from Georgia —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 89.232.10.171 (talkcontribs)

I understand the desire to remove the warning, but while there is no more active conflict right now, it's very unclear how things will settle. The fact that there are foreign troops in Samegrelo underscores this point. Wikitravel keeps up warnings when there is something to warn about, even though, for example, I myself would feel perfectly comfortable visiting Georgia east of Gori right now. --Peter Talk 20:59, 28 August 2008 (EDT)

Questionable edits regarding Russian language in Georgia[edit]

Some very dubious edits keep cropping up over the years suggesting that Russian is no longer useful in Georgia, and that travelers can get by fine by speaking English with kids. This is ridiculous. Barring the mass murder of everyone over 30 in the country, I doubt so much has changed since I lived there in 2005, when about one in three people speaks Russian competently, and certainly any English ability on the part of schoolchildren was extremely limited, as there is a shortage of qualified English instructors. Some of the information being added is strictly nonfactual, like the notion that Russian language instruction was ever compulsory in Georgia... As a matter of fact, people are much more willing to speak Russian in the Caucasus than in the Baltics precisely because it was never mandatory. If you politely ask someone, უკაცრავად, რუსული იცით?, they will either shake their head no, or otherwise happily assist you.

It is also not useful to keep harping on the Russo-Georgian conflict ad nauseum. Travel in Georgia has little to do with it, and a lot more to do with friendly, hospitable people, delicious food, spectacular and diverse landscapes, and a unique culture and history predating the latest little conflict to the tune of 3500 years. Lets get back on topic.

I'll be reverting a lot of this bunk in the days to come. --Peter Talk 22:06, 6 July 2011 (EDT)
