Austrian broadsheet newspaper promotes Georgia’s mountain tourism potential

Die Presse

The Georgian National Tourism Administration on Friday said Die Presse, an Austrian-based German-language daily broadsheet newspaper, was promoting Georgia’s visitor potential, advantages of mountain tourism, cuisine and culture.

The Administration said an article by Josef Ebner shared impressions of his trip to the country with readers and gave them travel tips.

The author said the country’s north-western highland Svaneti region had hosted qualifying rounds for Freeride World Tour Pro, a series of sporting events for freeskiers and snowboard freeriders, for the first time last month.

He also noted UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country and highlighted 800-year-old towers built for defence purposes in the mountainous village of Ushguli.

The release noted a new festival, entitled Giz-Gizi and organised by the GNTA, had been created for promoting winter resorts, and noted the event featured Georgian street food, traditional soup dishes, beer and chacha alcoholic drink.
