After having found my lost USB-stick on which I had saved the pictures of my travel, I continue today with the last station of my travel:

Batumi, Georgia (Part I)

Batumi, situated at the coast of the Black Sea in southwestern Georgia and capital of the autonomous republic of Adjaria, is Georgia´s 3rd largest city with a population of around 180,000. In the last years, Batumi has seen a construction boom which is really amazing for a city of that size, but many of the new buildings, intended to look luxurious and impressive, have been built in an absolutely weird and bizarre style, which makes Batumi look a bit like a little Dubai, but a Dubai where no one cares about questions of architectural taste. This strange architecture makes Batumi certainly one of the most strange and interesting cities in the Caucasus region, sometimes looking like one of the famous Ukrainian Black Sea cities, sometimes like California, sometimes like Dubai and sometimes like Disneyland.

Here are my first pics of Batumi:

Awesome thread. I love that you post street-level pictures instead of just monuments and iconic buildings.

Turkey is impressive. We don't get to see many pictures of Georgia elsewhere, but it seems to be getting on track too, even if some of the contemporary architecture is questionable.

Thanks for posting.
