Stop At: Borjomi, Borjomi, Samtskhe-Javakheti Region
Borjomi is a resort town in south-central Georgia with a population of 10,546. It is one of the districts of the Samtskhe-Javakheti region and is situated in the northwestern part of the region in the picturesque Borjomi Gorge on the eastern edge of the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park. The town is noted for its mineral water industry (which is the number one export of Georgia), the Romanov summer palace in Likani, and the World Wide Fund for Nature-site Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park. Borjomi mineral water is particularly well known in those countries which were part of the former Soviet Union; the bottling of mineral water is a major source of income for the area. Because of the supposed curative powers of the area's mineral springs, it is a frequent destination for people with health problems. Borjomi is also home to the most extensive ecologically-themed amusement park in the Caucasus. In the middle ages, the area of what is now Borjomi was part of the Tori province. It was populated by a series of forts guarding the strategic crossroad of routes leading to the western, eastern, and southern provinces of Georgia. Three important forts – those of “Gogia”, “Petra”, and “Sali” – still overlook the town from nearby hills. From the 16th-century into the 19th-, the area belonged to the noble family of Avalishvili but was largely depopulated as a result of Ottoman inroads.
Borjomi Central Park
Borjomi’s mineral water park, dating back to 1850, occupies a narrow wooded valley and includes the town's original mineral water source, Ekaterina Spring, which is straight ahead of the entrance. Most of the park is full of rather Neff rides and entertainments, but if you walk about 3km upstream, you’ll find several small, spring-fed swimming pools (5 GEL) with a constant temperature of about 27°C. Bring your swimming costume and flip-flops, towels are provided. This is a park where you can drink natural Borjomi water, relax among the nature of centuries, ride horses and enjoy one of the most fantastic views on the top where you should go by funicular.

Bakuriani is and a skiing resort in the Borjomi district of Georgia. It is located on the northern slope of the Trialeti Range, at an elevation of 1,700 meters (5,576 feet) above sea level. The region around Bakuriani is covered by coniferous forests (mainly made up of spruce). The resort lies 30 km (19 mi) from Borjomi and is located within the so-called Bakuriani Depression/caldera. The resort is connected with Borjomi by an electrified narrow-gauge railway. The present-day area of the town was built up by lava flows from the nearby Mukhera volcano.

The resort is connected with Borjomi by an electrified narrow-gauge railway. The present-day area of the town was built up by lava flows from the nearby Mukhera volcano. The ski area of the resort is split into two separate parts: Didveli and Kokhta/Kokhta-Mitarbi. Mount Kokhta provides a maximum skiable altitude of 2,269 meters (7,444 ft), whereas the highest lift in Didveli reaches 2,702 meters (8,865 ft).
The Kukushka is a 37.2-kilometer narrow-gauge railway line linking the town of Borjomi (820 m asl) to the village and ski resort of Bakuriani (1,700 m asl) in Georgia. The construction of this 900 mm (2 ft 11 7⁄16 in) line began in 1897 when Georgia was still part of the Russian Empire. The difficult terrain caused construction to take four years, and the first train ran in January 1902. Gustave Eiffel was commissioned by the Romanovs to design the viaduct over the Tsemistskhali River between the stations of Tsaghveri and Tsemi Originally, trains were pulled by a steam engine of the "Porter" type, imported from America, and passengers traveled in open carriages protected by handrails. The line was electrified in 1966 when the small steam engine was replaced by an electric "crocodile" locomotive made by the Škoda works in Czechoslovakia. The line is currently operated by Borjomi–Bakuriani Railway LLC (BBR), a subsidiary of Georgian Railways.
