O.I. Paresishvili, V.A. Mirzaeva

Abstract


Georgia, despite relatively small territory, has a number of valuable natural resources. Their efficient use is of great importance for purposes of sustainable development of the country. Scientific study of the whole variety of Georgian natural resources in view of regions suggests that the country has considerable recreational opportunities. The paper contains a brief physical-geographic description of Georgia, and general characteristic of recreational resources. While considering the issues of realization of Georgian resource potential, it seems reasonable to get acquainted with the experience accumulated in European countries similar in physical-geographic parameters and possession of natural resources. For this purpose the authors examine two European countries (developed and developing ones): Switzerland and Slovenia. The authors give the information concerning natural resources of the mentioned countries, analyze different aspects of the development of recreational sphere in those countries which are of interest from the standpoint of the establishment of this sphere in Georgia.
