 Imereti: Images

The historic region of Imereti in western Georgia is the region of the legendary Golden Fleece – this is where the long quest for the Golden Fleece took Jason and the Argonauts. Even though the Golden Fleece has been taken to Greece, visitors today will find something else of worth other than the Golden Fleece. The Imereti region is known for its remarkable location extending from the humid subtropical, ending 2850m high up with alpine meadows, numerous health spas and a large number of mineral water springs. Among its numerous historical sites Gelati Monastery and Bagrati Cathedral near Kutaisi, the capital of historic Colchis, have been declared Unesco World Heritage sites.
