Bloomberg: “Go to Tbilisi … and ski in Gudauri”
09 February, 2018

The world-famous business media outlet Bloomberg lists Georgia among five great European destinations that combine both culture and skiing.

"Pairing the delights of experiencing a cultural capital or historical site with the adrenaline of a few glorious days on the slopes is a total travel twofer. Here are five such combos you might never have considered”, read the article.

The first in this list is Georgia’s capital city of Tbilisi from where Bloomberg suggests tourists head to the country’s winter wonderland of Gudauri, which is located just 120 km away.

"Is there currently a buzzier capital in Europe than Georgia’s Tbilisi? Travelers from around the globe have recently been captivated by its head-turning mix of old-world sights (like the fourth century fortress that lords over the city), unique culinary traditions, and Soviet-era architecture”, read the article.

"Despite all its draws, Tbilisi is a compact city you can explore in just a couple of days, which means it’s easy to fit in the two-hour drive north to Gudauri, one of Europe’s most exciting new ski areas. With only 30 miles of skiable terrain and seven lifts, it’s not the sprawling winter wonderland of your dreams, but it is Georgia’s highest and largest resort, with excellent cat skiing, heli-skiing, and night skiing options”, it reads.
