UNESCO - Upper Svaneti, Georgia

Svaneti is a historic province in Georgia, in the northwestern part of the country. It is inhabited by the Svans, a geographic subgroup of the Georgians. Surrounded by 3000–5000 meter peaks, Svaneti is the highest inhabited area in the Caucasus - four of the 10 highest peaks of the Caucasus are located in the region.
Geographically and historically, the province has been divided into two parts—Upper Svaneti and Lower Svaneti. Architectural monuments of Upper Svanetia are included in a list of Unesco WHS. The towers were erected mainly in the 9th-12th centuries, and the botany is legendary among travelers.
