Longest tunnel unveiled in Georgia
The construction of the longest tunnel in Georgia has ended. The 8.5 km-long Kvishkheti-Zvere tunnel is part of the Tbilisi-Makhinjauri mainline. Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said the project will play important role in developing the country’s infrastructure. The implementation of this project will: Increase the capacity of the railroad line, Enhance the security of trains passing through this section and, Reduce travel time, with trains covering the distance between Tbilisi and Batumi in a mere four hours. The project is supposed to be finalised by 2020.  Railroad modernisation project is the part of the country’s Spatial Arrangement Plan.  Spatial arrangement means planning space in a rational, sustainable and balanced way; having integrated and territorial development of transport, construction, energy, tourism, manufacturing and other sectors; and improving links between towns and villages. In addition, the Tbilisi-Makhinjauri mainline project is equally important for the development of the Anaklia Deep Sea Port. These two projects will substantially change Georgia’s transit potential and economic landscape, which is why we prioritise their successful implementation. These projects are going to make a tremendous difference in the country”, PM Kvirikashvili said. Stressing that "every investment, every project serves the well-being of our citizens”, Kvirikashvili added that "our objective is to make effective use of the country’s potential and to provide our citizens with solid guarantees of a stable, peaceful, and better life”.

Михаил: Gocha, we are grateful for the excellent evening and for everything that we saw and learned on this journey thanks to you! THANKS from Mikhail, Lyuba, Natasha and Sergey! This toast is for you!

Олеся: To go on a tour of Georgia with the My Sweet Georgia team is the same as staying with good close friends. Warm, sympathetic, willing to show all the beauty and characteristics of their beloved country. We were told the most interesting facts and stories, deliciously fed with national dishes and cared for our comfort in every possible way. For days we stayed in an atmosphere of sincere friendliness, fun and Georgian hospitality. And even long journeys passed unnoticed - a comfortable bus with treats from the guide and the driver, songs, dances, films, funny stories and incredible beauty scenery outside the window brightened up the time on the road. From the tour, I returned already another ... Part of the Georgian soul and identity will forever remain in my heart, as well as friends, whom I acquired during the trip. With joy I will come back to you again and again, which I recommend to everyone!

Полина Зубрилина: Thank you all very much for a pleasant company and a good time! It's even sad that the trip ended so quickly. Thanks to the Georgian side for the warm welcome, patience and attentive attitude! Everything was very good! I think that I will go to Georgia yet, it remains only to wait for a direct flight! Oybek, thank you, that under your banner all of us have been gathered! ????

Betlemi Cave

Betlemi Cave

Mount Kazbek is a mythological mountain. There are many tales, legends and interesting historical facts about this mountain. Ancient Greek legend says that here Zeus punished the God Prometheus for giving fire to mankind. He was chained to its cliffs and a raven sent to peck at his liver. This story has a curious parallel with the Georgian legend of Amirani – local to the Kazbegi region. On the altitude 3800 m in the cave which entrance is in the upper part of 80 m rock, there is ancient monastery Betlemi (Bethlehem). By chronicles "Kartlis Tshovreba" this monastery was used as a depository of sanctuary and church treasury. Its monks got in by the long iron chain.
Sioni

Sioni

The Sioni Cathedral of the Dormition (Georgian: სიონის ღვთისმშობლის მიძინების ტაძარი) is a Georgian Orthodox cathedral in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Following a medieval Georgian tradition of naming churches after particular places in the Holy Land, the Sioni Cathedral bears the name of Mount Zion at Jerusalem. It is commonly known as the "Tbilisi Sioni" to distinguish it from several other churches across Georgia bearing the name Sioni. The Tbilisi Sioni Cathedral is situated in historic Sionis Kucha (Sioni Street) in downtown Tbilisi, with its eastern façade fronting the right embankment of the Kura River. It was initially built in the 6th and 7th centuries. Since then, it has been destroyed by foreign invaders and reconstructed several times. The current church is based on a 13th-century version with some changes from the 17th to 19th centuries. The Sioni Cathedral was the main Georgian Orthodox Cathedral and the seat of Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia until the Holy Trinity Cathedral was consecrated in 2004.
Narikala Fortress

Narikala Fortress

Dominating the Old Town skyline, Narikala dates right back to the 4th century, when it was a Persian citadel. The choice way to reach it is by cable car from Rike Park. Or you can walk up from Meidan. The views over Tbilisi from the top of the fortress are superb.

Лобио классическое

Лобио классическое

Что надо знать о приготовлении рецепта лобио Как обращаться с фасолью. Если фасоль старая, обязательно замочите с вечера или хотя бы на 3-4 часа. Слейте воду, добавьте новой холодной воды и поставьте на огонь. Если фасоль свежая, сезонная, ничего этого не надо. Просто залейте водой и варите. Фасоль готовится 2,5-4 часа, зависит от сорта и возраста. После того, как вода закипит, слейте всю жидкость и залейте таким же количеством кипятка из чайника (это «диетический» совет — кишечнику будет легче). Соотношение фасоли и воды — 1 к 4. Огонь после закипания воды — медленный. Время от времени фасоль надо мешать, так как она может пригорать. Кроме того, рядом должен стоять чайник с кипятком, чтобы подливать воду, если ее испаряется больше необходимого. Какая консистенция лобио правильная? Кашицеобразная. О кондиции бобов: можете считать их готовыми, если у большей части фасолин разорвалась кожица. Деревянной ложкой или толкушкой разминайте бобы, однако без превращения их в пюре. Мы готовим не фасолевый крем, а лобио — оно должно быть «придавленным», но крупно. После этого поставьте фасоль еще на некоторое время (не более 15 минут) на огонь. О приправах. В рецепте приготовления лобио перечислены основные приправы. Однако следует учитывать, что их количество надо контролировать, особенно людям, не привычным к насыщенным или острым вкусам. Чабер (по-грузински «кондари») добавляют не во всех районах Грузии, а вот что касается уцхо-сунели — то это ингредиент обязательный почти во всех рецептах лобио. Уцхо сунели есть не что иное, как голубой пажитник, — травка, активно используемая в средиземноморской и кавказской кухнях, и, к сожалению, плохо известная у нас. Купить можно на рынке у торговцев приправами (уже в сухом виде). Уксус в рецепте лобио не обязательно использовать бальзамический, можно красный винный. Обязательно только, чтобы он был натуральный. Как подавать лобио из фасоли. Лобио подается как в горячем виде — тогда это будет основное блюдо, так и в холодном, в качестве закуски. Если же вы приготовите очень острое лобио или лобио с грецкими орехами, то его можно подавать как соус-дип, макая туда кусочки хлеба или густой кукурузной каши. «Хлеб» — это лаваш или пресная кукурузная лепешка (мчади). Как приготовить лобио из красной фасоли 1. Залейте фасоль холодной водой, добавьте лавровый лист, немного посолите и варите 2,5-3 часа, время от времени помешивая, пока бобы не станут мягкими. 2. За 10-15 минут до окончания варки снимите лобио с огня, отлейте жидкость, а фасоль подавите, разомните. Если получается сухая масса, добавьте немного сока фасоли (воды, в которой она варилась). Затем снова поставьте на огонь потомиться. 3. Спассеруйте в растительном масле измельченный лук. Порубите свежую кинзу. Используйте для этого не весь пучок, а часть (другая часть уйдет на сервировку). Когда они будут готовы, насыпьте сухие приправы и все перемешайте. 4. Поместите в ступку свежую и сухую кинзу, уцхо сунели, чабер, перец, чеснок и щепотку соли. Как следует разотрите их пестиком. 5. Когда лобио будет готово, добавьте к нему зажарку, уксус или ткемали и ингредиенты, раздавленные в ступке. Верните на огонь еще минут на 5-1о. Посолите, если надо. Если хотите подать в глиняных горшочках (традиционная грузинская подача), самое время переложить еду из кастрюли туда и поставить в духовку на 5-7 минут. 6. Подавайте лобио, покрошив сверху свежей кинзой (или петрушкой) и полукружиями лука. Рецепт с сайта http://volshebnaya-eda.ru/
Пеновани

Пеновани

1. Дрожжи развести в небольшом количестве теплого молока, добавить сахар, одно яйцо, немного муки (на глаз, до густой консистенции смеси), перемешать все руками или венчиком и дать опаре постоять полчаса в тепле, чтобы она поднялась. Оставшуюся муку в это время просеять, всыпать крупную соль и добавить 20 грамм масла. 2. Как только опара поднимется, добавить ее в муку, смешанную с маслом, влить оставшееся молоко и замесить густое тесто. Накрыть его пищевой пленкой и убрать в холодильник, а через полтора часа, когда тесто поднимется, вынуть и разделить на части весом около 70 грамм. 3. Доску посыпать мукой и раскатать порции теста скалкой во всех направлениях — так, чтобы получились довольно тонкие квадраты. Свернуть тесто пополам и снова тонко раскатать, проделать это трижды. Если нужно, понемногу подсыпать муку, что­бы тесто не прилипало к рукам и доске. 4. Сыр нарезать большими кус­ками и натереть. Добавить 20 грамм масла для смягчения вкуса и одно яйцо для вязкости — чтобы при запекании сыр схватился и не вытекал. Тщательно перемешать, но консистенция должна остаться рыхлой. Выложить на квадраты ­теста по 60 грамм начинки и скрепить края в виде конверта. 5. Выпекать в духовке, разогретой до 220 градусов, пятнадцать-двадцать минут. Оставшееся масло растопить на плите или в микроволновке и с помощью кулинарной кисти смазать им подрумянившуюся корочку — для более аппетитного вида. Сразу же подавать: пеновани нужно есть теплыми. Если нет времени на то, чтобы сделать слоеное тесто самостоятельно, можно использовать и упаковку готового
