What comes first when talking about Georgia? Of course, mountains, temperamental men, wine and a generously laid table. The inhabitants of this picturesque country decided to emphasize the importance of their centuries-old traditions. The Georgian feast has become a memorial of the intangible culture of UNESCO.
Such an unusual status was assigned to the traditional process of food intake by the National Agency for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Georgia.
Earlier, the traditional Georgian technology of aging wine in large earthenware jars (kvevri), three types of Georgian alphabet, as well as the national fight were named as intangible cultural monuments.
9 years ago Georgia became a part of UNESCO. Each country in this organization is required to register and protect important state cultural monuments. It is written in the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
