Botanical Garden

One of the most picturesque places in Tbilisi is situated near the old fortress Narikala. Here is the Botanical Garden. Its age reaches up to 400 years. 

But it all began with a little "palace" of the garden, created in 1625 under the citadel. It gradually grew and even mentioned in the records of French travelers of XVII century. And in 1845, was turned into Tbilisi Botanical Garden, becoming a research center for the study and conservation of flora.

In the lists of the Garden there are about 3500 types of plants from all over the world. At one time, this botanical center was place of acclimatization of some kinds of trees and flowers, later spread to other gardens of the former USSR. At this moment, there are 7 research departments dedicated to the breeding, ornamental and landscape gardening, and others.

In addition, the Botanical Garden is cooperating with 70 major gardens in the world for the exchange of seeds and herbarium material. 

For the visitors, the Botanical Gardens - is a place for recreation, where you can wander for hours among the trees of Europe, America, Asia and Africa. Presently, it covers an area of 128 hectares, albeit some time ago a Muslim cemetery was attached to it. In the garden there is the river Tsavkisistskali, over which rise three bridges. Under one of those bridges there is a beautiful waterfall, which became a favorite place for walking.
