Batumi – Adjara

Batumi – Adjara

Batumi  – the “Pearl of the Black Sea,” as it is often called – is the second largest
city of Georgia, located on the coast of the Black Sea in the country’s
southwest. Situated in a subtropical zone near the foot of the Lesser Caucasus
Mountains, Batumi is a popular tourist destination known for its varying weather–it
is a bustling seaside resort during warm seasons, but can get entirely covered
in snow during winter. Much of Batumi’s economy revolves around tourism
and gambling, but the city is also an important sea port and includes industries
like shipbuilding, food processing and light manufacturing. Since 2010, Batumi has
been transformed by the construction of modern high-rise buildings, as well as the
restoration of classical 19th-century edifices lining its historic Old Town.
  The main sightseengs: Batumi Boulevard, Batumi Botanical Garden, Alphabetic
