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.
