BREATHE IN HAPPINESS RETREAT IN SVANETI

Georgia is a country rich in history, traditions and friendship. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, it is a land of contrasts, an intoxicating mixture of eastern and western influences, spiked with soviet style strangeness and throes of renaissance, ambitious with new landmarks and transforming city escape. 
Let us guide you to the country where legendary stories of Medea and Argonauts unfold, where the first human civilization outside of Africa was settled, where Christianity was adopted in early IV century and winemaking has been practiced for over 8,000 years. If you ever wondered why people have been falling in love with Georgia since the beginning of time  visit ancient cave towns, hear folk stories expressed with polyphonic songs and traditional dances, admire architecture of centuries-old castles, fortresses and churches scattered all around the country

BREATHING HAPPINESS takes place in Svaneti Region of Georgia’s Caucasus mountains  which is a medieval hideaway. Preserved by its long isolation, the region is an exceptional example of mountain scenery, where centuries-old defensive towers loom over remote villages. The culture of Svaneti is intriguing, offering some of Georgia's most solemn and mysterious dances, and the most complex polyphonic singing in the Caucasus—a tradition dating back over two millenia.

Svaneti region is a must visit place in Georgia. If you are interested to see the highest inhabited point in all of Europe, you will have the opportunity to do so during the retreat: Ushguli, UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a Svan village with some of the most stunning views found in the entire country. En route to Ushguli, you’ll visit Svaneti’s regional center Mestia. A quaint town approximately 1,500 meters above sea level. Despite its small size, it is packed with historically significant architecture and buildings, including forts and churches that date back to the medieval period of Georgia’s history.

And of course, there is no trip in Georgia complete without a visit to Tbilisi - most unique capital in the world. Tbilisi feels European, medieval and completely foreign all at once, it seems to change after each and every quarter, leaving you amazed and inspired.

Beautiful, wild and mysterious, Svaneti is an ancient land locked in the Caucasus, so remote that it was never tamed by any ruler. Uniquely picturesque villages and snow-covered, 4000m-plus peaks rising above flower-strewn alpine meadows provide a superb backdrop to the many walking trails. - (Lonely Planet)
