The first thing coming to your mind when you see Batumi that it has been much invested in. Very much. The city was practically rebuilt. Still there are no many tourists, beaches are empty in some areas, but for someone it is only the advantage. Batumi has a good airport, many hotels, cafes and shops. Stories about “dangerous Georgia” are nonsense! The people are friendly and hospitable, they do not often mention politics…
Tower of the local airport. The building is unusual and rather beautiful at night.
The investments are mostly American, Turkish, Azerbaijani. One of the main investors is Donald Trump.
They are building new houses and restore old ones. Sometimes it seems you are in France.
There are no traffic lights. Special people regulate traffic.
Clean and beautiful
New residential houses
The old part of the city mostly consists of two-storey buildings, the first storeys are occupied with shops and cafes, the second ones are dwelling.
Typical street of the Old city
From above it’s not so beautiful, so there is still work to do.
The city is still being constructed.
Some scenes remind of the Soviet past
Cigarettes are sold by items too
Many currency exchange offices
Some buses leave doors open because it’s too hot.
There are many taxi cars
They haven’t repaired everything yet
Much fun at night
Out of the city, the ancient fortress
One of the bridges of tsarina Tamara of the 12th century
The waterfall is as high as 7-storey building
Come and have fun!
