So, you are in Batumi and beach bumming bores you? Here is a perfect day trip idea. Discover natural beauty of a very unique place just around the corner.
Go to the Batumi Botanical Garden.
It is located a bit outside of town, in a place called The Green Cape on the Black Sea shore. I must say the name is well-deserved.
The garden was created back in 19th century. It covers 108 hectares. That’s a chunk of land, isn’t it? The institution is home to numerous plants hailing from very different corners of the globe. A bamboo forest, Japanese decorative trees, Peruvian plants, citrus collection, European flowers, everything coexist at the Green Cape.
The Batumi Botanical Garden is a perfect place to walk around, get lost, and take close-up photos of flowers. This is exactly what I did there. Here is a little tribute to one great green space.
