A visual journey through Georgia
Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, Georgia is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan and covers a territory of 69,700 square Km for a population of about 4 millions inhabitants.
Following the bloodless Rose Revolution in 2003, Georgia strongly pursued a pro-Western foreign policy, aimed at NATO and European integration, it introduced a series of democratic and economic reforms. The country’s Western orientation soon led to the worsening of relations with Russia, culminating in the brief Russo-Georgian War in August 2008 and Georgia’s current territorial dispute with Russia.
