It is a fact that Georgia is a very safe country to visit, as there are extremely few incidents in which tourists face difficulties while traveling in the country.
Fatal cases which have been reported were mostly because tourists did not consider given recommendations, prohibitions and advice into account, and walked into dangerous areas. Besides, some amateur mountain climbers and alpinists try to move into the directions without having local experienced instructors and attempt to make their way alone.
Tourists frequently say that they face no problems when walking at nighttime and that Georgians are mostly very friendly to them.
Such indexes and facts, of course, raise the country’s rating as a safe country to visit and spend a good time.
