Batumi Botanical Garden
Gazing across the deep blue waters of the Black Sea, on high hills, where lush greenery and flowers with a riot of colors draw attention, lies the Batumi Botanical Garden that was founded in 1912. It’s one of the main touristic destinations in the Georgian Black Sea region of Adjara and home to more than 5,000 plant species. These plants and a variety of tree collections are collected both locally and from other subtropical climates including Japan and the Himalayas.
Batumi, a coastal city with a backdrop of mist-covered hills, woos travelers from all over the world. The beaches are welcoming, food and wine mouthwatering, and the culture ancient and lively. It is unique with its clever synthesis of the mountain and the sea. A hub for all seasons, Batumi attracts travelers for endless, well-spent beach days in the summer, and for skiing in the Goderdzi Resort (two-hour drive from Batumi) during the winter. At night, the alluring energy flows through the narrow streets encircled with bars and restaurants, as the locals and tourists blend with one another.
