Photos of the Georgian Military Road

Following a millenia-old migration route across the Caucasus, the Georgian Military Road was built by the Russians after they annexed Georgia in 1801. It served strategic purposes against the Ottoman Empire, and was one of the most stupendous engineering feats of the 19th century. Unchanged it still is today.
