Geography

Artvin is an attractive area of steep valleys carved by the Çoruh River system, surrounded by high mountains (up to 3900m) and forest with much national parkland including the Karagöl-Sahara, which contains the Şavşat and Borçka lakes. The weather in Artvin is very wet and the forest is every shade of green imaginable. This greenery runs from the top all the way down to the Black Sea coast. The rain turns to snow as you climb higher, and the peaks are very cold in winter.

This area has a rich history but has not been studied extensively by archaeologists in recent decades. Artefacts dating back to the Bronze Age and even earlier have been found.

This to and fro-ing from Russia to Turkey continued with the Treaties of Brest-Litovsk, Moscow, and Kars. All this fighting and uncertainty between Russia and Turkey in the late 19th century caused the people of Artvin to suffer terribly, with much of the population moving westwards away from the Russian-controlled zones.

Artvin, Turkey (410 words)
The small provincial capital of Artvin is situated in the far northeast corner of Turkey, separated from the coast by the first of the Pontic mountain ranges.
Despite the steepness of its mountain slopes the area around Artvin - the "rain-covered Kolchis" of the Argonaut legend - is blessed with conditions ideal for the cultivation of a wide variety of fruit, vines, olives, hazelnuts and tea.
In 1071 the Artvin area, which from the ninth century onwards, under the Bagratids, had became the political and cultural heartland of Georgia, fell to the Seljuk Alp Arslan.
