Trees and plants of all shapes and sizes fill the garden, each accompanied by metal signs explaining the properties of all plant life throughout the garden.

  • One of the attractions is the Sukhumi botanical garden. If it's your first visit, be sure to buy tickets with excursion. You can take a walk in the garden alone and do lots of great photos. In a relatively large territory not plants collected from all over the world! What struck me most about bamboo and fern "shamefaced, which minimizes their leaves when they touch.

  • Good, quiet location. The territory is small, but pretty well-groomed. In winter people quite a bit that has to leisurely walks and heart-felt conversation. They say that it is worth visiting the botanical garden tour, talk a lot and wonder. Next time try)

  • Love this place in Sukhumi. You cannot drive, one side overlooks the main street of the capital of RA-Leon. On the contrary, the State Museum, which I recommend to visit and the Botanic Garden. Bust at the entrance to Nestor Lakobe. Was led by the Soviet Government of Abkhazia until poisoned by Beria. Were in the garden in spring and autumn, in September. In one of those visits, ahead of a strong storm occurred. Rose water in rivers, the wind smashed lots of trees, not without losses in this sense and in the Botanical Garden. However, the old lime-keeper of this place-survived. Inside the tree is reinforced with stones, concrete solution. As it is alive is a miracle. But seeing the spring leaves. -Dendrological garden collection is interesting, there is a rare species of rhododendrons, camellias. There are Agave, which cannot be seen in Sochi. To view and walk through the garden would take nearly 2.0 -2.5 h. In the spring, in April, in a pond blossom blue flowers from bulbous family. The Park is very comfortable to walk, since it is located on level ground, many paths, but there are no slides. The territory is relatively small when compared with the Sochi Arboretum "or" Arboretum "sukhum. Garden care, it shows. But, as I understand it, not enough hands. And yet it is very beautiful and nice place! I recommend visiting. At the checkout, you can buy a card for Abkhazia.

  • Good place to spend time with family. It is also historical place, but needed a little restoration.
  • its a very nice place
  • Quite small and expensive relative to other botanical gardens. It has some nice parts but it is not worth the price
  • 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.
