There are 33 letters in the modern Georgian alphabet; 5 vowels and 28 consonants with no capital letters and each letter is pronounced exactly as it is written.
Georgia as a trade and logistics hub
As a country at the heart of the crossroad between East and West, the histories of Georgia's famous sites and traditions are interwoven with the histories of many different cultures, yet Georgia has always remained distinctly itself. The Pavilion highlights not just the mobility of culture but also the unique opportunity Georgia presents as a regional hub of trade and logistics.
