It is believed that some of the greatest writers created their works at Batumi Botanical Garden. The list of famous names includes, e.g., Ilya Ilf, Sergei Yesenin, and even Mikhail Bulgakov!
When exploring Makhinjaur, don’t forget to visit nearby Batumi. What is worth seeing in the city? You definitely should go to the Europe Square at Memed Abashidze Avenue.
Because of the subtropical climate, there’re many health resorts in the area. Placed in the woods and mountains, they make a perfect destination for those who want to improve their health.
Makhinjauri is a small town with the population of just around 700 people, lying on the cusp of Europe and Asia, in the region of Caucasia. It’s a popular resort located in Georgia, in the Autonomous Republic of Adjara, by the Black Sea coast.
The Adjara region, within which the town is situated, unites the beauty of both, the sea and the highlands because of its location at the feet of the Caucasus Mountain Range. To move about the town and its surroundings, use the marshrutka. It’s a minibus taxi-type service; each bus can carry several passengers at a time.
Makhinjauri is only 5 kilometers away from Batumi, the second largest city in Georgia. For that reason, it’s just perfect to stop by and take a break from the urban bustle. However, if you feel like it, head to Batumi and discover its beauty. No more than 2 kilometers from the town, in Mtsvane Kontskhi, you’ll find Batumi Botanical Garden. It’s really worth a visit. The intense green of this place, lying very close to the beach, will leave you speechless.
Concerning the beach, it is one of Makhinjauri’s top spots. Large and wide, gravel, with a gradual entry to the sea is an ideal place to relax. When the visibility is clear, you can even spot the Caucasus! About an hour away from Makhinjauri, at the feet of the mountains, there’s the district of Keda. It’s famous for its viticulture and production of various types of wine. You can tour the vineyard, sample wines, and buy the one you’ll like the most.
Even though Makhinjauri is small, you can find an excellent eatery here; to top it all off, it's by the sea! At Mcvane Liandagi you may enjoy your meal while admiring the spectacular sunset. It serves Eastern European and Georgian cuisine, as well as fresh vegetables accompanied by local herbs.
