An escape on the Black Sea

On the black sea, Batumi is one of the main port of Georgia and, thanks to its location in a subtropical zone, it has become the country’s summer holiday capital.

Though its history dates back to the ancient Greece, it owes much of its charm to the elegant fin-de-siècle buildings, that were erected during the city’s late 19th century development as the western terminus of a railway from Baku that then carried one-fifth of the world’s oil production.

Along the beach there is a long promenade with parks and cafes. It’s a nice place for a walk.

As far as hotels are concerned, I would choose between the Radisson Blu and the Sheraton (not tested)
