Georgia, along with Germany, has joined the European Network of Historic Gardens, which until now was comprised only of Portugal, Spain, Italy and Poland.
By joining the network, Georgia becomes the part of the Cultural Route of the Council of Europe as well with its five historic gardens in Tbilisi, Batumi, Zugdidi, Kutaisi and Tsinandali.
