Georgia is surrounded by natural wonders, ranked 119th with the size of 69,700 km2. It’s located between the Black and the Caspian Sea, squeezed between Caucasus main and minor mountain ranges on Colchida lowlands and Lori Plateau. Its neighbors Russia in the north, Azerbaijan in the south-east, Armenia in the south, and Turkey in the south-west.
The climate of Georgia is hugely determined and influenced by the Caucasus mountains and their rich water recourses. Here you can find approximately 26,060 rivers and 840 lakes. The main part of the country, mostly in the west, is covered in pleasant subtropical and continental areas, while the east is temperate. The yearly temperature in Georgia ranges between –8°C, -6°C in the mountains, +15°C to +25°C in subtropical areas, and occasionally +40°C in dry eastern areas in the summer.
