In 1858, famous French writer Alexandre Dumas traveled to Georgia and was fascinated by the country, traditions and people.
“They are so wonderful, noble, honest, brave, and generous, that a separate research should be made on them.” Dumas was impressed, with the appearance of Georgians; especially, Imeretians, Gurians, and Megrelians: “Europeans cannot even imagine the beauty of the Colchian people. Men especially have particularly beautiful bodies and walking manner. Even an ordinary servant looks like a nobleman.”
He dedicated several chapters to Georgia in his book “Adventure in the Caucasus”.
