Located in the Caucasus region in Eurasia, lying between Europe and Asia, the country of Georgia is an important area at the crossroads of various cultures. It is bordered to the north by Russia, to the southeast by Azerbaijan, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the west by the Black Sea. After an early period of unification, the borders of Georgia passed through the hands of various regional powers, including the Mongols, the Ottoman Empire, Iran and Russia.
The climate of Georgia is diverse, influenced by subtropical trends from the west, and continental trends from the east. Once reaching over 2,000 meters, alpine conditions predominate with year-round snow.
