Transcaucasian Trail nears completion

Rebecca McPhee, Explorersweb »

Since 2015, the Transcaucasian Trail Association (TCTA) has been developing a 3,000km hiking trail across the Caucasus Mountains. The finished Transcaucasian Trail (TCT) will consist of two 1,500km sections spanning Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan.

The northern route follows the Greater Caucasus Mountains and connects the Black and Caspian Seas. The southern route spans the Lesser Caucasus Mountains from the Black Sea to the Aras River.

While the trail is still being developed in Azerbaijan, there are currently hundreds of kilometres of trail open to the public. The TCTA hope that a 1,200km route from northwest Georgia to southern Armenia will be fully open by 2022.

The 10 least-visited European countries

The UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recently released their annual Tourism Highlights report which tracks international tourist arrivals.

Here is a list of the European countries with the least international tourist arrivals (Some, I imagine, is simply due to their size):

  • San Marino – 60,000
  • Liechtenstein – 69,000
  • Moldova – 121,000
  • Monaco – 336,000
  • Macedonia – 510,000
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina – 777,000
  • Luxembourg – 1,054,000
  • Armenia – 1,260,000
  • Serbia – 1,281,000
  • Montenegro – 1,662,000

Of note, the UNWTO did not publish the data for Belarus and Slovakia.
