 Svaneti: Images

Svaneti, the "Pearl and Pride of Georgia," is a historical region in north-western Georgia, on the southern slope of the main Caucasus range. To the east the marvelous forested Racha neighbours the Svaneti region. In Mestia, Svaneti’s regional centre, unique icons and manuscripts are kept in its museum. Medieval “koshki” (towers) spring up in clumps around the homesteads. Each family house has its own tower, most dating back to the 12th century.
