Adjara lies on the coast of the Black Sea near the foot of the Lesser Caucasus Mountains, north of Turkey. It is an important tourism destination in Georgia.

The region is home to the country’s second largest city of Batumi that stands out for its architecture, delicious cuisine, friendly people and landscape. Yet, apart from its coast, Adjara possesses unique highlands graced with tropical plants and trees. Since the region receives the highest amount of precipitation both in Georgia and in the Caucasus, it is the greenest part of the country.
