Countries in Pictures – Travel Talk Series - TRANSCAUCASIA: Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia
Countries in Pictures – Travel Talk Series
Traveling to world’s ancient countries through talks and rich collections of pictures
TRANSCAUCASIA: Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia by Mr. Vincent WONG
Located on the peripheries of Iran, Russia and Turkey, these three subject countries
have been an arena for political, military, religious and cultural rivalries and
expansion for centuries. Throughout their history they had come under control of
various empires including the Achaemenid, Parthian, Roman, Sassanian, Byzantine,
Mongol, Ottoman, Iranian and Russia Empires before they gained independence.
Despite the turmoil, they somehow managed to maintain their rich and unique
cultures. This, together with their many unspoiled scenic attractions, make them
ideal travel destinations.
Testimonials from participants of previous travel talks and study tours led by Vincent:
“I have learnt a lot on this subject!”
“Very comprehensive indeed. Thanks!”
“Very useful guide for my future trip!”
”Now what I have seen makes much more sense. Thank you!”
