Central town in Svaneti at 1.500m. in Caucasus mountains. Here is the Museum of history and Ethnography which is one of the MUST see museums around Georgia with its unique and rich displays. There is an alpine lake system Koruldi which is just 50-60min. offroad driving from the centre and during the sunset creates one of the most amazing views on summit Tetmuldi. Mestia is reached with local cafes and restaurants where local food is made in a great way, e.g. Tashmijabi or Kubdari.
