National Botanical Garden of Georgia, Tbilisi

(4.1/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
The National Botanical Garden of Georgia, formerly the Tbilisi Botanical Garden is located in Tbilisi, capital of Georgia, and lie in the Tsavkisis-Tskali Gorge on the southern foothills of the Sololaki Range . It occupies the area of 161 hectares and possesses a collection of over 4,500 taxonomic groups.Its history spans more than three centuries. It was first described, in 1671, by the French traveler Jean Chardin as royal gardens which might have been founded at least in 1625 and were variably referred to as "fortress gardens" or "Seidabad gardens" later in history. The gardens appear in the records by Joseph Pitton de Tournefort and on the Tbilisi map composed by Prince Vakhushti . Pillaged in the Persian invasion of 1795, the garden was revived in the early 19th century and officially established as the Tiflis Botanical Garden in 1845.From 1888 on, when a floristics center was set up, Yuri Voronov and several other notable scholars have worked for the Garden. Between 1896 and 1904, the Garden was expanded further westward. Between 1932 and 1958, the territory around the former Muslim cemetery was included in the botanical garden. Several graves have survived, however, including that of the prominent Azerbaijani writer Mirza Fatali Akhundov . The central entrance to the Garden is located at the foothills of the Narikala Fortress. The other, cut through the rock as a long tunnel in 1909-14, had been functional until the mid-2000s when the tunnel was converted into Georgia’s largest nightclub "Gvirabi".

  • I'm not a fan of gardens, parks, and nature. Garden surprised. And the fact that at any time it seems deserted. If you are the one walking. There are many cozy nooks with lavokami, which offers a wonderful landscape. Rather, suitable for romnticheskih visits than for tourists. Once you can go. Entrance is free of charge.

  • Narikala fortress and grounds are separated by Sololaksikm Ridge and mountain stream. Even in winter, it is very cozy and picturesque place. I was raised on foot from sulfur baths, and then the stairs to the left of the entrance (if you stand back to him) in the fortress.
