Botanical Garden - Review
If you love verdant environments and vivid foliage, the Batumi Botanical Garden will charm you!
Having a legend that, the dense greenery of plants and trees is a result of someone’s global adventure on the quest of bringing to Batumi several diverse plants, this attraction is a pleasant delight. Almost depicting the Garden of Eden, mentioned in the Bible this is one of the world’s largest and richest botanical gardens. Its location overlooking the Black Sea only makes this attraction even more striking!
Its creation dates to the 18th century by Russian botanist Andrey Nikolayevich Krasnov, with its opening on the 3rd of 1912. As an ode to Krasnov’s spectacular hard work and creation the garden houses his grave and statue. This Batumi gem draws crowd throughout the year, however, come Spring and it comes alive in a way like no other time of the year! Sprawling across a whopping 111 hectares, the Batumi Botanical Garden is divided as per geographically distinct flora and fauna. These include - Caucasian humid subtropics, East Asia, New Zealand, South America, the Himalayas, Mexico, Australia, and of the Mediterranean.
Indeed, a great place to spend the day or half out!

Botanical Garden, Batumi Reviews
Amazing views / beautiful flowers / multiple paths so be prepared to wear comfortable walking shoes but worth it in my opinion. There is also bigger version of golf carts for a fee inside, but they stick to the main route - however I thought was good option for kids and those who find it hard to walk. Note: paid toilets outside the entrance disgusting don’t use - toilets inside the garden were clean and maintained well.
You can practically spend a full day at Botanical garden. It's heaven who are interested in types of plants from various regions. Garden is spread over vast area and should keep atleast 2.5 hrs to get a good look. There are several scenic spots overlooking the coastline. I would recommend that you should purchase one way ride in a battery operated vehicle for 5 Lari to limit getting exhausted by walking in hot and humid weather. It will be better if you can carry some food as there is only one snacks shop.
Excellent garden. A wide variety of plants, everything is green and beautiful. At some places you get a good view of Batumi and the black sea. The major downside is that the park is on a hill, while the north entrance and the south entrance are lower, and the main route of the park goes uphill (steeper and shorter from the south entrance, moderate but longer from the north entrance). Tip: if you are handicapped or have difficulties walking, you can enter from a 3rd entrance, which is located south east. This 3rd entrance is higher than the main route (and there are handicapped toilets there). From there you can descend down and right follow the main route down to the north entrance. Then you can take an electric cart (pay) which will take you towards the south entrance (you'll still need to go further downhill towards the exit, but there is a stairs free path). I further suggest to ask to leave the cart at the top of the hill and go down to the bottom by yourself, as there are very nice views that are worth stopping and taking photos. By the way, our cart driver was very nice. He spoke Russian and even knew many words in Hebrew. He gave us good and interesting explanations about what we saw. Especially interesting were the "shy" flowers, which fold immediately after being touched - they are very interesting to see, but you will miss them, unless someone tells you and shows them.
Nice and clean park. Lots of rare plants. But: most of the route is ascending, prepare to get super sweaty. Despite what is written on the main site, you cannot rent anything: no bikes, no scooters, no electric cars. Only bus that makes stops on dedicated spots.
A must visit place when you are in batumi. They have plants & trees from all parts of the world with stunning views of the sea and internal park zones. The air there is so pure that you cant simply have enough of it. But be prepared to do alot of walking especially uphill. The the views and atmosphere is simply stunning.
