The “Ali and Nino” moving sculpture is definitely one of the most amazing and memorable sights in this Georgian Black Sea resort. “Ali and Nino” is a celebration of true love without boundaries and prejudices. This breathtaking process is repeated every 10 minutes.

“Me, You and Batumi” 

The composition was put up in a Miracle Park near Alphabetic Tower in 2012. The author of the statue is Irakli Tsuladze. The statue symbolizes the tradition of coffee drinking which is typical to Batumi lifestyle. That’s why the composition is represented by a woman and a man sitting at tables and drinking coffee. Batumi

 Batumi Backyard Stories

It is a grassroots cultural initiative that brings together local artists and citizens to explore and co-create the hidden histories that exist within any given neighborhood in the city. Interdisciplinary artist teams interview the families who live within a neighborhood courtyard block, discovering their cultural legacies and creating a customized art installation and performance event in their neighborhood courtyard. The public art installations pay homage to what the neighborhoods’ families wish to call attention to within everyday life, and they, along with Batumi’s local residents and plentiful international tourists, are invited to attend these celebratory opening events.

Batumi Boulevard

The famous Prussian gardener and landscape architect Ressler initially began the construction of Seaside Boulevard in 1881. Two years after the project began, Ressler passed away and Michael D’alfons, a French architect, completed the boulevard. Recently, a Spanish architect designed and constructed a new, modern addition for the boulevard. As a result, the boulevard’s area has increased to a 7 km stretch. The coastal line of the boulevard has been beatified with bungalows, café-lounges, restaurants, children’s attractions, benches, sculptures and dancing fountains-making it one of the city’s most attractive tourist destinations. Colonnades were constructed along the boulevard in 1934 and have since become iconic architectural elements of the city.
