Abstract
Javakheti, a historical province of Georgia, is a region of complex natural conditions, distinctive landscape and a unique limnographic network. Eight protected areas have been established in this region during the last 20 years. In the past, a variety of reasons hindered tourism development in this region, leaving it substantially behind other regions of the country. Now, as a result of a geographical study of natural, cultural and historical sites in the region - and following the launch of the Baku-Tbilisi-Akhalkalaki-Kars railway crossing its territory - considerable touristic development is expected in Javakheti. Five tourism resource zones have been allocated within the region.
