The Botanical Garden

Tbilisi Botanical Garden

If you follow a steep ascent from the sulfur baths in Old Tbilisi and enter the main gates at  Botanikuri Street 1, you’ll begin your journey into a garden that is four centuries old, and has been a botanical garden for the past 180 years.

At the entrance, you will find small scooters, but it is better to follow the garden paths on foot, meandering along the course of the Tsavkisistskali River. On the way, you’ll pass through green squares, a pond with water-lillies, and soon you’ll come to picturesque Tsavkisistskali Waterfall, where a wooden bridge made in 1898 affords an unparalleled view of the Botanical Garden’s #1 attraction.

Tbilisi Botanical Garden has a unique landscape, a true gift of nature. More than 3,500 species of plants are grown on its territory.

If you’re looking to inject a little adrenaline into your experience, the 270-metre zipline from Narikala Fortress ends in the garden, and there is also the option to climb the natural cliff within the gardens.

An introductory tour is available at the visitor centre, in which you’ll learn some interesting stories about both the history of the park and the species of plant found within. These tours are available in Georgian, English, and Russian.
