Batumi’s oldest public park, 6 May Park accommodates much more than what an average public park usually does. A dolphinarium, an aquarium, a zoo and even a lake.
Designed and constructed by a Prussian gardener, Ressler in the 18th century, the park had its name changed when the Russian Emperor Alexander III visited and planted Magnolia in 1888. As an honor to this occasion, the garden was renamed as the “Alexander Garden”. It was finally named 6 May Park in 2006 after a lot of reformation. Throughout the garden, you will spot spectacular sculptures and statues, that also make up for great phot opportunities.
The “Nuri Geli” lake inside the 6 May Park is a beautiful lake, albeit a sad legend behind it. The legend goes that, the name of the lake is derived from a baby boy whose name was Nuri, toppled into the lake and drowned. After his demise, his mother visited the lake daily mourning “Nuri geli” which means Nuri I am waiting for you! A heart-wrenching story indeed, this lake is charming, to say the least.
