This new edition of Bradt's Georgia, the only dedicated guide to the country, has been thoroughly updated throughout, with greatly expanded coverage of Batumi, Adjara and Svaneti. The capital, Tbilisi, has seen huge changes in the past decade with some conspicuous new projects such as the Peace Bridge, the Opera House and Saakashvili's Presidential Palace. Much of the country can be visited in day-trips from the luxury hotels of Tbilisi and Batumi; the remotest areas such as Svaneti and the Pankisi Valley can also now be visited. Mestia, the capital of Svaneti, now has an airport and a ski resort. The Georgian wine industry is covered, as is the Black Sea resort of Batumi, near the Turkish border.
