  • Sukhumi Botanical Garden is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the Caucasus. It was founded in 1840 as Sukhum-Kale Military-Botanical Garden by the head of the Russian Black Sea fortification line N. N. Rayevsky with the purpose of the introduction of new plants in the region (particularly tea and citrus fruits). It was ravaged by Turkish forces in 1853-55 and 1877-78 in the course of the Russo-Turkish wars. The garden was transferred to civil authorities in 1889 and the restoration of the plantings was begun in 1894.
  • Great open outdoors botanical garden, with wide variety of plantsbfrom all over the world. The oldest tree is more than 500 years old. They renovated the park, so it is noce to walk there and enjoy good weather.
  • A bit run down, but nice. Well worth a stroll.
  • While the garden is not that large, it's still nice and there is a really old tree in the center, and when I say old, I mean really, really old! If you are in Sukhumi and got some free hour just get there)
