    Beautiful park, all plants are signed. Paths require minor repair. A nice stroll in the shade of the 400 year old lime-trees and bamboo groves in the afternoon, when the beach early.

    Interesting, but in the Botanical Garden of zapushhennnost. Paid at the entrance to 250 USD for visiting fun. Asked the tour guide, we were denied. Decals are not updated, read the name of plants. Podrodili on alejkam, did a few shots and left.

    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.

    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)
