Europe Gala Ceremony 2023

29 September 2023 – Batumi, Georgia



Batumi, Georgia

On the shores of the Black Sea and with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, the Georgian city of Batumi is rapidly establishing itself as one of Europe's most exciting tourism destinations.

The capital of the Adjara region is home to a delightful belle époque old town, which has been restored to its original glory. Many buildings date back to the 19th century when Batumi was an important port along the route from Europe to the Caspian Sea. Meanwhile the construction of new hotels and glistening towers is transforming its skyline into a scintillating mix of new and old.

Batumi's boulevard is one of the world's longest, stretching for eight kilometres, and is renowned for its broad walking and bicycle paths, magnolia and palm trees, fountains, café and children's attractions.

The combination of seaside and mountains makes Batumi an ideal year-round tourist destination, with Adjara's large protected areas offer unforgettable experiences for eco and adventure tourism.

With Georgia one of the oldest Christian countries in the world, the Adjara region is famous for its religious monuments and monasteries. Gelati and Bagrati, both recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites, are located just a few hours' drive from Batumi. Tbilisi, Mtskheta and other parts of Georgia are also very rich in unique and diverse cultural monuments.
