A Georgian’s character is firmly set on a solid foundation of family, religion, and fierce patriotism. Family is one of the cornerstones of Georgian life and families are usually quite large and extended here. Due to the prevailing traditional gender roles and influence of the Orthodox Church, Georgian men are protective, moralistic, and tend to be the providers in the family. They are educated, caring, strong, and very generous. Date a Georgian man and you will be surprised by his openness and warmth of soul! Hospitality, the Georgian Orthodox Church, wine, ancient tradition, poetry, singing and art, are all deeply rooted in the Georgian character.
Situated at the strategically important crossroads where Europe meets Asia, Georgia has a unique and ancient cultural heritage. It is famed for its traditions of hospitality and for its unique cuisine. Georgia’s moderate climate enables residents to live an outdoor lifestyle and its landscape offers something for everyone - pristine beaches, thick forests, majestic mountains, and magnificent rivers and streams. The climate is Mediterranean-like on the Black Sea coast with cold winters up in the mountains.
