Opera House
“The history of the Opera theatre counts more than 165 years. The foundation of the so called Caravanserai Theatre, which would seat 800 spectators, was laid down on April 15, 1847 by the initiative of the Viceroy of the Caucasus, Adjutant General, Prince Mikhail Vorontsov. The construction of the building of the Theatre, under the supervision of the Italian architect, Scudieri lasted four years. On April 12, 1851, the first opera theater in Transcaucasia held its Grand Opening with a masked ball, attended by the high society of Tbilisi. On October 25, same year, a popular Parisian newspaper L'Illustration printed a large article by Edmond de Bares with two pictures of the interior of the theater. The author wrote, “This is the only theatre in the city, the interior of which is totally Moorish in style, and is undoubtedly one of the most elegant, beautiful and fascinating theatrical constructions, percepted by man.” The famous French writer Alexandre Dumas, who visited Tbilisi in 1858, dedicated a whole chapter to the Opera theatre in his book: “I must confess that as soon as I entered the lobby I was astonished by the simple and refined style of the ornament. I had a feeling as I entered the lobby of the Pompey Theatre. In the upper foyer the ornament was changed by Arabic carving. We entered the hall, which seemed to be the palace of fairies, not because of its rich decorations, but because of the fact that it was made with the most delicate taste. It is possible that much money was not spent on it, but I can say without hesitation that I, in my entire life, have never seen such a delightful hall..."”

Park
“Batumi Boulevard is one of the main attractions for the town’s visitors. The wide boulevard follows the seaside and is full of beach bars, café-lounges, restaurants, amusement rides for children and various colorful and dancing fountains. In addition to unique vegetation, you will find in Batumi Boulevard many interesting sculptures and architectural monuments. Batumi Boulevard has a history of over a century. Its construction began in 1881. Its creation was the idea of Batumi district governor Mekalov, who commissioned the coastal boulevard to be built to a famous Prussian gardener named Reseller. Later, the planned development of the boulevard was handed over to a French gardener and designer invited to Georgia, Mikheil d’Alphonse, who is referred to in historical records as the “Kind Genie of Batumi Seaside”. The development of the boulevard also owes much to Gordeziani, who studied in France and was appointed the manager of the City Park Boulevard in 1917. The first colorful dancing fountains of the Boulevard have been functioning since 1977. In 2009, the length of the Boulevard was significantly increased and now reaches 7 kilometers. The so-called New Boulevard was designed by a Spanish architect and built in accordance with the latest standards.”
