a few words
The Caucasus mountain range is probably the most variegated ethnological and linguistic area in the world. It is not a melting pot, as has been said, but a refuge area par excellence where small groups have maintained their identity throughout history – Richard Nelson Frye.
Georgia is an ancient country and the home of Georgians, the people who, despite a durable history of wars and suffering, still strongly value the unique centuries-old culture, traditions and the religion. The country is known as the birthplace of wine, a home to the first Europeans and 4 UNESCO world heritage-listed sites. Georgian polyphonic folk music was also put on the UNESCO Intangible cultural heritage of humanity list in 2008. The Georgian language is considered as one of the oldest languages in the world with its own alphabet. According to Georgian literature and folklore, hospitality is idealized and valued more than boldness and courage.
The first nation to adopt Christianity, also known as “the land of churches” and homeland of apricots. Religion, rituals, traditions and family life have played a huge role in helping Armenians around the world to keep a strong sense of heritage and identity. The capital of Armenia, Yerevan is one of the oldest inhabited cities. “The Pink City” gets its pink hue from the volcanic rock that was used to build the buildings in the city. Armenia has 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Tatev Aerial Tramway is the longest non-stop double track cable car – according to Guinness World Records.
Also known as The Land of Fire, Azerbaijan – has more mud volcanoes than any other country in the entire world. One of the most popular sites is Yanar Dağ – Burning mountain, along the Caspian Sea. Inhabitants of Azerbaijan are still creating traditional crafts. Taylsh people make handmade carpets with hundreds of years of tradition that their ancestors created. Traditional music is still played on a stringed instrument – kobuz.
Little summary of our commitments
Mimino in Caucasus decided to contribute to human resource development in the tourism field and hosted the first, fully funded “Guides School” in 2018. Ever since, we choose a limited number of passionate and motivated students and help them to broaden their knowledge and practical experiences in our company. We annually open the call for students – accept applications, interview candidates and choose 20 to 25 participants to train.
Mimino in Caucasus promotes the sustainable development of Georgia’s most vulnerable destinations to benefit the local culture and environment. We want to transform tourism’s impact on nature and people by collaborating with local families and small businesses. We strive to develop ecotourism in rural areas in Svaneti, Khevsureti, Tusheti and other locations for inhabitants to host our visitors – introduce them to our traditional crafts, indigenous recipes, local dishes and interact with Georgian familiar ambiance. We offer tour catalogs to our customers and update them annually, actively working on new projects and activities with our local partners.
One of the most popular day hikes in Georgia. It climbs from Stepantsminda village to the foot of Gergeti glacier covering Mt. Kazbegi. On the way, you will pass the beautifully situated Tsminda Sameba church, probably the most famous Georgian landmark. As its parameters suggest, this walk is ideal for really fit hikers. Walkers with less stamina and more money can start their walk from the church, which is accessible by jeep.
Going to Georgia, travelers usually prepare themselves to enjoy khachapuri, lobio, khinkali and, of course, a variety of meat barbecues, which are called “mtsvadi” in Georgian. Advanced experts in Georgian cuisine leave some free space in the stomach for pkhali, eggplants in walnut sauce, chakhokhbili and kharcho. However, our compact country has such a rich variety of regional dishes, that even if you decide to try one new for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will need more than several weeks to explore the whole treasury.
