Why to visit Borjomi this summer
The famous mineral spring water “Borjomi” which is sold in over 30 countries worldwide actually originates from the Georgian city-resort of Borjomi. However, apart from the famous mineral water there are so many other reasons to visit Borjomi this summer. In today’s article Georgian Journal offers you a list of reasons to travel to Borjomi.

With the summer heat surrounding the streets of Tbilisi is it any wonder that most people would like
to get away somewhere outside of the city to cool down for a bit. Well if that’s the case for you then Borjomi may be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

The Borjomi mineral water park is a very popular attraction with tourists who visit Borjomi. This is the place where the “famous” mineral water was first produced. While there you can bring your own bottles and fill them up with the mineral water which is known to be good for health. Children are also bound to have a good time, since the park also offers a variety of attractions and amusements for them to enjoy.

If you wish to stay overnight or for a few days ,there is plenty of high quality accommodation available such as the prestigious “Crowne Plaza Hotel“ which is conveniently located in the heart of the city near the mineral park. It’s a relaxing hotel that offers “contemporary interior design rooms with a hint of nostalgia”, terrace with a café, restaurants, a wine bar and a luxurious spa that offers swimming pool and sauna as well as other health care options.

However, cheaper options are also available as well as renting your own apartment..
