If you are talking about your native country and you need to say that you have never traveled, is it wrong to use "in" to talk about your country as it is used in my first sentence? I added the rest of the text for more context.

So far, I have only managed to travel in Georgia. My favourite place here is Mount Kazbek. It used to be an active volcano, which has long since died out. At the foot of the mountain there is the Trinity Church. It contains the cross of Saint Nino. On the way to the top of the mountain ( added there) there is the monastery of Betlemi.

    Yes, you can speak of travelling in a country (your own or any other) to refer to going to different places within it. May 7, 2021 at 12:21
  • Thank you. Could you please tell me if the rest of the text is also correct and I should have indeed added "there"? May 7, 2021 at 13:35

    We normally use there is when we first refer to the existence of something ('There is a church near my house'). However, it would not be wrong to omit there when you begin the sentence with the location. 'Near my house is St. Mary's Church'. May 7, 2021 at 13:54
  • I wasn't sure "contains the cross" is correct. Should I leave everything as it is? May 7, 2021 at 14:00

    If the cross is inside the church then contains is fine. If it stands in the churchyard or on top of the tower then you would need some other form of words..

"In" is possible and you can speak of travelling "in" your own country. You could also use "around". "So far I've only travelled around Georgia".
