  • In Batumi everything is impressive, except the cable car. Having risen upstairs, I experienced shock. Is that all? There's no view, nothing... Want to see from above Batumi? Go to Sameba. The best view and a lot of impressions. Do not waste time and money on the road

  • In any case, I started my acquaintance with Batumi with this unique rope: First, I was impatient to sail over the city almost 3 kilometers, secondly, we had to see the neighborhood and chart the elevation points for future research, thirdly, Start your acquaintance with the general plans going later to the particulars-quite a good option to explore the new city.

  • The views are stunning. Especially when the sun is going down. The distance that the cart goes is not short! Definitely must-try experience. As you reach the top there's a cafe, souvenir shop and a photo service (they can take a professional photo, print it, put in a souvenir-frame and give it to you in no time). But still - 15 Gel fir a trip seems quite a lot :-/
  • It was 15 GEL for the return trip. There are toilets, cafe, gift shop, viewing area and a church at the top. There are three or four pay-to-view telescopes there, they are 1 GEL. I went on a cloudy day, but it was still worth it for the views. It takes about 15 minutes in the cable car. The staff were very helpful.
