Photographer's Note

Ushguli is a mountain village in Svaneti classified by Unesco and sourrounded by 5000m Caucasian peaks. Some say it is the highest village of Europe at 2100m above sea level. It has about 200 inhabitants. The defensive towers that compose the local architecture were built in the middle ages and served to protect the inhabitants from all sorts of attackers until not long ago.

Quite a spectacular place to visit!
