The Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia articles claim to belong to Eastern Europe.

WikiPedia:Caucasus says "The Caucasus region is geographically a part of Asia ... but historically and culturally it is often seen as a part of Europe".

Either the Asia article is incorrect, or else the Armenia/Azerbaijan/Georgia articles need to be amended.

For now, I've removed Russia and the Caucasus from the Asia article. And I've redirected this article to Russia_and_the Caucasus.

I think that we have a geographical hierarchy policy, which means the Caucasus are part of Asia. The article should say it is part of Europe, culturally. Perhaps a cultural hierarchy is also needed? -- Huttite 15:12, 1 Jan 2006 (EST)
so Armenia/Azerbaijan/Georgia need to be removed from the Eastern Europe article?
No they can stay there because of the cultural association, though mention that it is cultural or political and not geographical. -- Huttite 16:51, 1 Jan 2006 (EST)

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 02:07, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

I think that would be a wonderful and very useful itinerary. I have a lot of experience with this sort of trip and would gladly help out. I am quite busy at present, though, with the establishment of a Russian language version of Wikitravel, so I won't be able to turn my full attention to this for a little while. --Peter Talk 02:14, 31 Ju00ly 2007 (EDT)

Georgia-Russia border is open again[edit]

Check this: apparently the border is open again... can someone verify it? more sources? I think we should update the articles. Daniel32708 15:45, 7 March 2010 (EST)

It definitely has (just) reopened, but only the crossing on the Georgian Military Highway. The one thing I haven't been able to confirm is to whom it is open—limiting border crossings to CIS nationals has been pretty common in the post-Soviet Caucasus. Regardless, I imagine dealing with the Russian officials at that crossing would be hair-raising... rough part of the Federation! --Peter Talk 02:08, 8 March 2010 (EST)

Border is open now:

Georgian crime rate?[edit]

I tided up the language regarding crime in Georgia, but can't verify the statements. I am sceptical as to the claim regarding Georgia having amongst the "lowest crime rates in Europe" 01:32, 16 October 2012 (EDT)

Caucasus region[edit]

(swept from the Pub)

Hello. Came across the article of Europe, looked at its map - it's like it should be, i learned at school about Europe and it looks as i have learned. Opened Caucasus region, again, it's correct, the line above reads that it is in Europe. But the article actually is linked to Asia - it is listed among Asia's regions, and it is not listed among Europe's regions. I probably have no competence to start to make such significant corrections or improvements. P.S. - why Caucasus and Turkey are in both Europe and Asia in this case is clear, explanations are provided, but all links probably should conform the maps and whole concept, while things that overlap are explained in the text --Local (talk) 14:39, 2 January 2015 (EST)

IsPartOf This article contains two instances of the template {{IsPartOf}} which make the RDF breadcrumb trail at the top of the page. Usually, pages contain only one instance and function like a hierarchy. Koavf (talk) 14:42, 2 January 2015 (EST)
Aha, indeed, it contains 2 instances. Since only 1 is visible it probably is useless. But my main point was that Caucasus region is absent in Europe's "Regions" list. I mean, it is on the map, but absent among the "Regions" in the text. --Local (talk) 14:53, 2 January 2015 (EST)
