A Brief Introduction of Batumi
Located along the Black Sea coast, Batumi is the second largest city in the country and the capital of the Adjarian Autonomous Republic, which is part of Georgia.
It is in an ideal location, where mountains and the sea meet. At the same time the city itself is located on the plain. The population is about 200 000 people. The center of Batumi is 17 km from the state border in the city of Sarpi. After crossing the border, the coast begins and runs up to the end of the border in the north of Georgia.
The number of tourists arriving in Georgia annually exceeds the number of its own population. One of the most popular cities is the sunny Batumi. Beautiful and even a little festive atmosphere of the city, a tandem of historical places and amazing modern architecture, enthralling with breathtaking aromas of masterpieces of local cuisine restaurants and cafes, endlessly green and filled with entertainment for every taste, the embankment makes this city an ideal place for family and youth recreation.
The Government of Georgia has determined more than 100 countries citizens can enter Georgia without a visa and stay on its territory a year.
Depending on the preferences of the traveler, a trip to Batumi can be arranged through a travel agency or go there independently. In practice, the second option is cheaper. Flights are better to buy in advance, but not earlier than 2 months before the date of departure. If the budget is limited, it makes sense to subscribe for sending special offers directly to the airlines’ websites and for the daily dispatch of prices to the desired direction of the airplane search platforms, such as www.skyscanner.com, www.aviasales.com, etc.
23% of tourists coming to the country are Russians, 20% are Azeris, 19% are Armenians, 15% are Turks, and the remaining 23% are from other countries. Since Batumi is in close proximity to Sarpi’s state border, the daily number of tourists staying in this city is quite large.
