This is a short film-sketch about the countryside and a man: a film about expecting the New Year and the preparations of the New Year’s eve. The so called “old” New Year, i.e. Kalanda is celebrated in a special way in Guria.
Warmest thoughts and Best Wishes from ATINATI for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Among the outstanding Georgian traditions, the harvest is one of the most important and old traditions that still lives on today. A Georgian cherishes vineyard, like his own child, dedicates all his effort and energy to it and when Autumn comes and grapes get ripe, the vine festival - harvest begins. The harvest is a sort of holiday in Georgia. The country is considered to be the homeland of wine and has 8000-year-old continuous tradition of winemaking.
Walk in Tbilisi - The capital of Georgia where East meets West. Tbilisi is the biggest, multicultural and multi-religious city in Georgia. It is located on the both banks of the Mtkvari river. Tbilisi has been regarded as one of the most tolerant cities since the old times. This is evidenced by the shrines for people of different cultures and religions living side by side in one district: Christian, Gregorian, catholic churches, synagogue, an atashgah and a mosque.
