Georgia is the country of great history and culture. Near town Dmanisi, was found the remainder of the fossil human (Homo ex gr. erectus) the age of which is approximately 1,8 million years. Nowadays this is the oldest fossil man in West Eurasia. During the Stone Age human gradually mastered the whole territory of Georgia. Archeological excavations have revealed cultural materials of paleolith, neolith. Hellenistic and Antic periods: castles, burial chambers, gold and ceramic unique artifact. All this confirms the close relationship of Georgia with Greek-Roman as well as Iranian and Asian countries.

In 330 Orthodox Christianity was announced a state religion in Georgia. Since then Christian culture is beginning to flourish in Georgia. The Christian religion influences the whole culture of the middle ages. During the middle ages thousand of churches, cathedrals and monasteries were build in Georgia.

The richness of Georgian architecture is fully manifested in the existence of numerous churches. The history of this field of architecture is connected to the development of Georgian domed churches with a square central bay and four arms around it forming a crass. The versatile folk architecture is also worth being pointed out here. The “Darbazi” type of dwelling was typical to the Eastern regions, whereas the “Oda” type prevailed in the West of Georgia. Fortresses and towers were widespread in the mountainous regions.
