Architectural Features of Batumi
Batumi is one of the cities that got their & laquo; face & raquo; only in the last two decades. There were panoramic views from which you can find out what exactly it is Batumi.
Before the country's authorities turned the port city into a tourist center of Georgia, Batumi was no different from the coastal provinces of the Soviet Union. Of course, there were historical architectural masterpieces in the city, such as: a Catholic church, built in 1903 at the expense of the Zubalashvili brothers from the famous dynasty of Georgian merchants-patrons. Now the Gothic building is the property of the Georgian Orthodox Church, and the Catholics of Batumi conduct their services in a small new church near the hotel & laquo; Velmont & raquo; (formerly Leo Grand), opposite the marshalling yard.
Many outstanding architectural examples of the past & laquo; have sunk into oblivion & raquo; and were simply demolished, some survived & laquo; reincarnation & raquo; and now they have appeared in a “new role”, for example, in the building of the former railway station there is the central office of one of the leading banks in Georgia. Slightly retained their & laquo; face & raquo; cobbled city streets of the old city.
Many architectural monuments of the last century have undergone restoration and restoration: Cafe & laquo; Fantasy & raquo ;, Summer Theater, etc.
