Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings
One of the biggest botanical garden I have ever visited. We spent an afternoon here, but we have seen like the third of the park. There is a huge selection of plant from all over the world. Facilities are nice, all the pathways are in good conditions. The view is amazing to the see and to the park itself.
Very nice place to spend time. Beautiful nature and view. Hot in the summertime. To walk around you may spend 3-4 hours. For people, with children or who not like walk the electric cars are also available for tour.
It's an okey place to visit if you are near Batumi and have some time to kill. I couldn't find any exciting plants in the gardens, just ones that are mildly interesting. The park is pleasant enough and the best thing about it is the seaside location. Not bad, but also not exciting. The locals made its sound like it's the best botanical garden in the world, but, uh, that's definitely not true. The best way to get there is by taxi. Even though there are train stations nearby, they seem to be closed.
Definitely worth a visit. A 13 lari taxi from Batumi to get there. I went on a clear April day, which was just perfect. You can't buy any drinks inside the garden, only at the entrance, so make sure to take some refreshments.
It is a good place to visit and interesting to a botanist. Great views of the Black Sea and Batumi
