(The coastal city, don't want to add spoilers to the quiz) is really a city worth checking out. It's like a strange mix between the french riviera and Las Vegas. One of my favorite cities!

Some very interesting architecture there. Same for Tiflis but very different style.

I wouldn't classify Abkhazia as Russian controlled, influenced sure, but I'm pretty sure most Abkhaz citizens would not be happy with the wording here.

But it is trully Russian controlled region.You may mind about Abkhaz citizens (app.150 000 people) but you don't mind about 4 mln of the rest of Georgians :)))

Very, very beautiful country. So many mountains and rivers and different landscapes in a small area. Several lovely cities. Delicious food. Friendly people. And though I got pulled over constantly, feels like a total police state driving around there, the cops were always so damn nice I almost didn't mind. Only thing that I really didn't like was that many of the roads seemed like they were built in 1930 and hadn't seen an hour of maintenance work since then. Particularly some of the roads in Kutaisi, and one of the three (which I foolishly chose) going between Tbilisi and Yerevan - easily the worst highway I've ever driven on in my life.

The name was changed around the 1890's, so we think we'll stick with only accepting Batumi.

Could you add some alternate spellings for Caucasus? I could've sworn it's been accepted as "caucauses" elsewhere on this site

We accept a huge number of mis-spellings for that answer already. If it's phonetically in the ballpark, you'll get the point.

I guessed the sport on my first try, and I have no idea how. Must have been one of those JetPunk facts that took up residence in my brain.

In all our quizzes, spelling is important, though we generally allow a few type-ins. Now you know the correct spelling, take the quiz again, know how to spell it, and bank the points!

I thought Georgia was called Colchis at the time? The Kingdom of Colchis?

Colchis co-existed along with Iberia for a few hundred years, but it was disestablished before the Roman Empire (27 BC), leaving Iberia within the region.
