BAKURIANI - A Winter Wonderland for the Whole Family

Bakuriani is Georgia's year-round mountain playground and was
Georgia's first ski resort. The area became famous in the 19th century
when the Romanov family developed the area into a game reserve and
mountain retreat. They even hired Gustav Eiffel to design a bridge for
a narrow-gauge railway up to its verdant pastures. There the Russian
aristocracy enjoyed abundant coniferous forests, crystal clear air and
breath-taking views.
