Description 

In antiquity Georgia was referred to as Iberia for Eastern Georgia and Colchis or Colkhida for Western Georgia. The Georgians themselves refer to their country as Sakartvelo, which translates as the place surrounding Kartli, a central Georgian province. Georgia straddles an isthmus of land stretching between the Caspian and Black Seas, making it the literal cross roads between Europe and Asia. The towering Great Caucasus mountains range from the North to the lowlands of fertile valleys, semi-desserts, steppe lands and to the tropical coasts of the Black Sea.
