Tbilisi Botanical Garden
The Tbilisi Botanical Garden is a centuries-old garden in the historical center of Tbilisi. Since ancient times, the Botanical Garden was the royal gardens, with references found in the manuscripts of travelers dating back to the 17th century. With time, the gardens transformed into an arboretum, and at about 1845 acquired its current look. This makes the Tbilisi Botanical Garden one of the oldest botanical gardens in the former Soviet Union.
There are over 3500 types of plants in the Tbilisi Botanical Garden. Across the area of 128 hectares are both local and world plants, plus pavilions, shady alleys, a few waterfalls, and bridges, all for the comfort of visitors. The gardens are an ideal spot for walking and biking.
The collection of rare plants at the Botanical Garden will be of interest to those who love plants. There is also an old Muslim cemetery on the territory of the gardens, where many distinguished figures from the history of the Caucasus are buried. And anyone can enjoy a quiet moment in nature while sitting in the shade of a centuries-old tree near the river.
