About the Republic of Georgia

Georgia

Georgian people are friendly, energetic, and have a strong sense of their own culture.

Ethnic Georgians call themselves Kartvelebi, their land Sakartvelo meaning "a place for Kartvelians", and their language Kartuli.

Ancient Greek myths and legends, in particular, those about the argonauts, mentioned Georgian tribes. In the legends of the 50 great Greek Heros, Jason sailed to Colkhis in quest of the famous golden fleece.
