    If you're in Batumi, take the time and money to go upstairs. From the Windows of the cabins have impressive views of the drive (shocking), the city looks like from above. Worth a close look at the unfinished buildings, which nevertheless already inhabited, in backyards, etc. .. At the top you can enjoy a cup of coffee and "Digest" what they saw.

    Of course, skip is kinda like the highest and the most extensive in Europe we could not kanatku. On the first evening failed queue, returned the next day and early-half of the fifth, Stojko stood a small turn in a stuffy room where powerful only clean fans standing in the forefront. The rise of 10-15 within minutes in the booth nekondicioniruemoj 6 pers. -fun questionable. Yes and species do not have. At the top is a simple platform with a pay-per-view telescope, which even for 1 lari did not want to give a clear overview. Sit on the summer terrace was not reluctant. Quickly came back. And all of this for adult round-trip ticket cost 15 lari or 1300 rubles on the most favorable rate! Not worth it. Children's at least three times cheaper. Or we chose not the time of day?

    11 minute ride to the top of Batumi is nice. There's a funicular on top of the hill with binoculars. Quite good restaurant also is there.

Where to stay in Batumi

Thanks to a growing influx of wealthy visitors from surrounding nations, Batumi is increasingly awash with luxury hotels geared towards the city's casino industry. In addition to typical international luxury options, you'll find other upscale hotels located on Batumi's main promenade and along the waterfront. However, proximity to the water and beach usually means a much higher price tag. To keep costs low, consider staying a local hostel or guesthouse, which provide comfortable sleeping quarters while providing quick access to the remodeled city center and waterfront. As an added bonus, staff at local establishments may be able to give you insider recommendations for food, bars, and activities.
