Botanical Garden, Batumi Reviews - Write a Review
Very big and versatile botanical garden worth visiting. Very nice views on the shore lines. However, the garden management could be more creative giving the garden more aesthetic sense and not just a forest of many kinds of trees grouped by geographical origin. Hope one day they will read it and do something :)
One of the largest botanical gardens in Europe, divided into numerous country/climate zones - perfect place to visit in off season, when its not bustling with tourists. On your way back, be sure to order a taxi using one of official taxi services in advance, if you don't want to be charged double by unofficial taxi drivers standing outside.
Everything was nice and beautiful but I am with my mother she can't walk too much we barely made it to the bus station there so I tried to ride the electric bus and we are 9 person (big family) they told us to wait till the bus come and we wait about an hour..(there is i think 5 buses 2 of them big enough for us) when the two buses come they said one of them the switch not working the other one need to charge so I try to talk with them and one of the drivers he come to me and want to start a fight but when I say police he go away with some bad words in Georgian language after all they hardly make the bus don't have enough change work and it was not bad we get to other side...so if you have someone have problem for walking too much... it's not good place for you believe me
Good place to visit. It will be more helpful for pharmacy students. My advice is not to visit during August. Because the weather is so hot and humid. You have to walk long distances and climb up the hill.
This is an excellent botanical garden. Beautiful scenery with large varieties of plants from different regions of the world. My favorite attraction in Georgia. Must visit in batumi. You can take minibus 31 from the city. If you can not find the bus stops, at least you can get on the bus opposite the cable car.
