The Caucasus

Hemmed in by the Black Sea to the west and the Caspian Sea to the east, the three Transcaucasian countries sit at the crossroads between Europe and Asia and have been subject to countless invasions and cultural influences. Ancient warriors and traders have left an indelible mark on the region’s art, architecture and cuisine over the millennia, making this an intensely fascinating area to visit. The mountainous nature of the interior makes for some spectacular scenery, and the snow-capped peaks of the Caucasus form an impressive backdrop to the region’s incredible human geography.
