Batumi Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
It's a pleasant city with a good but stony beach. The center is quite small and can be covered on foot. There are no real monuments, but quite a few houses that are worth a look; they mostly date back to the 19-th century when Batumi was an important border town in the Russian defence against the Turks.
The Russian orthodox cathedral unfortunately hasn't made it to present day. In the communist days it has been replaced by the Intourist hotel.
