Silversea Luxury Cruises A BATUMI

BATUMI

As part of the ex-USSR, Batumi, on the coast of Georgia, was slow to arrive on the travel map. However, as the iron curtain lifted, so emerged a gorgeous Black Sea city. And unsurprisingly so – Batumi’s blue-flag beaches, sub-tropical climate and wealth of tradition, culture and landmarks make the city a sensational option for travellers. Batumi’s deep harbour and southwest location in the Caucasus region means it was important trading city, with citrus fruit and tea among the main exports. However, its privileged position also made attractive to invaders. View more

Over the years, the city has been part of many different empires including Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Ottoman and, most recently, Imperialist Russia. Such a patchwork of history is bound to have left a mark and a you only need to stroll through the splendid old city to evidence of past influences. The city’s eclectic architecture ranges from traditional 19th-century Russian houses, ultra-modern high-rise masterpieces and (now) brightly-coloured Soviet-era apartment buildings all next to or within a few blocks of each other. During the Russian era, Batumi’s borders were closed (the Turkish town of Sarpi is just 20-minutes away), and the city’s prominence dwindled. When the borders opened again in the early 1990s, a brand new Batumi emerged, proud and keen to show the world what it was made of. The city modernised with Las Vegas style bright lights, yet even with these modern attractions, Batumi’s charismatic belle époque glamour is hard to beat.
