Cover - Georgia, Country #84

This cover was sent to me from the Georgian capital Tbilisi. Beautiful cover with the stamps on cultural heritage of Georgia 2012. I always like a cover with a complete set of stamps on it. One interesting thing to note, heritage is spelt haritage on these stamps.

A little about the country....Georgia is a sovereign state in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan.

Georgia was formerly a province of the Russian Empire and later a part of the Transcaucasian Federation of Soviet Republics. Stamps of Georgia were replaced in 1923 by those of Transcaucasian Federated Republics. On Mar. 1, 1994, Georgia joined the Commonwealth of Independent States.
