The City of Batumi offers the advantages of beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery. The city center is impressive with 19th Century Russian Imperial architecture.
In the nearby village of Tkikhisdziri, visitors will be enchanted by the Petra fortress and complex. The museum contains artifacts from the excavation of the fortress, representing ancient (8th to 6th Centuries BC) and medieval (4th and 5th Centuries AD) periods. Among the artifacts are fragments of Hellenistic mosaics, ceramics, coins and currency, weapons, and agricultural tools.
North of the Port of Batumi is the Batumi Botanical Garden. Over 100 years old, the garden rests on a high cliff where cool breezes play in the lush green landscape.
