Culture of Georgian

Georgian culture is an exotic, mysterious and ancient culture stretching back for millennia. Elements of Anatolian, European, Persian, Arabian, Ottoman and Far Eastern cultures have influenced Georgia’s own ethnic identity resulting in one of the most unique and hospitable cultures in the world. Georgian culture is world renowned for being accommodating and tolerant. Traditionally, Georgian people consider guests to be a gift from god and their welcoming amiability is immediately apparent upon a traveler’s arrival.
Georgia’s strategic geographic location between Europe and Asia is one of the primary reasons for its diverse, yet distinct, cultural features. Its vector on the historic Silk Road enabled important trade connecting the north, south, east and west. This junction of commerce along with Georgia’s own bounty of resources combined to form a definitive amalgamation of cultures.
Throughout history, pockets of isolation in the remote mountain areas have maintained much of their primeval peculiarity. These gems of antiquity offer the tourist a glimpse into the authentic Georgian condition.
Recognition of Georgian culture has piqued international interest placing Georgia at the forefront of heritage tourism and research to become one of the great cultural legacies of the modern world Georgian monumental architecture, world famous polyphonic singing and traditional music, book miniature, rich spiritual and secular literature, colorful folk dances and ballet, theatre and cinema, jewelry, metal works, enamels, and paintings all bear trademark qualities of this ancient culture.

Festival & Celebration

Georgian traditions of the New Year celebration are interesting. “Chichilaki” is used in Georgia as an equivalent of the New Year tree. It is a long stick twisted with lush white shavings and decorated with dried fruits and sweets. In the end, it is burnt. On the evening of New Year’s Eve, Georgian housewives bake round bread made of wheat flour which is suspended on a vine to attract a rich harvest. The first person to enter the house after the New Year is called “mevkle”. Festive merriments last till the night of January 2nd, which is called “bebodis dge” (“day of happiness”).

One of the most authentic Georgian holidays is the ancient pagan Chiakoconoba. With the onset of darkness in the cities and villages, high bonfires are kindled. When most of the firewood burns, the bonfire is then jumped over several times in order to get protection from evil spirits and purify a person from their harmful influence. Every year in October, Tbilisi celebrates City Day – Tbilisoba. Guests from different regions of the country take part in fairs, selling farm products and tasting wine. Handmade souvenirs and handicrafts are sold at the fairgrounds. Concerts featuring famous performers are organized on the streets of the capital.

Cuisine

Georgian cuisine is the result of the broad interplay of culinary ideas carried along the Silk Road Trade route by merchants and travelers alike. The importance of both food and drink to Georgian culture is best observed during a feast called supra, when a huge assortment of dishes are prepared, always accompanied by large amounts of local wine, known to be one of the world's oldest wines, produced in ancient authentic Georgian underground kvevri clay pots. In a Georgian feast, the role of the tamada (toastmaster) is an important and honoured position.

Clothing

The traditional costumes in Georgia were formed by the influence of nature and way of life in this country. Every man was a warrior, a farmer and a shepherd at the same time. And every woman was (and still is) a housewife, but there are very strict rules about the behavior of Georgian women. They must be modest and devout. Traditionally they couldn't show their body to strange men, only to their husbands. That's why national men costumes tend to be comfortable and warm, and women costumes in Georgia tend to be hooded and modest, but very beautiful and feminine. Nowadays these rules are not so strict, but national clothing still displays Georgian traditions and laws.
