“Botanical Garden is very important due to its functions and location. Many developed cities would love to have such place in the center of the city. We have an opportunity to develop it even more. We are launching very serious project that will incorporate entire Tsavkisitskali Gorge within Botanical Garden of Georgia. At the territory lanes for cycling and walking will be set up as well as visitor center will be arranged. The garden will have alternative entrance with parking lot. Cyclists will have an opportunity to ride a bike along 4 kilometer lane in a beautiful gorge located in the city center” Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze elaborated.

Arranging adventure tours and fully using its potential was part of international experts’ recommendations. Currently the garden is stretched over 97 hectares that also incorporates Tsavkisitskali Gorge. The latter one is notable for its distinct landscape and unique nature.
