Event description
What do you know about Georgia?

Maybe you know that this country is religious, maybe you are familiar with some political aspects or even you have heard about some weird cultural characteristics from the “lonely planet”.

But u will be amazed how much stays undiscovered about our culture for the rest of the Europe beyond guide books or other informational sources. And you will never know unless you experience yourself.

The cross-border of Europe and Asia…
Breathtaking mountains, cave towns, cradle of wine, exotic cuisine, dances and songs, cultures where ancient traditions still live, where friendship and respect are essences of mentality, where guests are always welcomed.

Meet the undiscovered!

Experience new unforgettable adventure every single day.
Get involved in the city game, that will reveal mysterious parts of the city, where the only chance to win is to solve cultural puzzles.
Take your hiking shoes to conquer one of the highest peaks of Georgian mountains, be ready to meet bats and some mysterious creatures inside the caves. Don’t forget your swimming suits to be ready for sunny beaches of Black sea.

Be ready to present your culture at the European Night in the best way to win the special prize.

Realize how much close and at the same time how much distant we are from the whole Europe.

Dance with us GandaGana!!!
