Itinerary


Day to day

Meeting Point is the Statue of Niko Nikoladze in the area of Poti Sea Port. The Guide will be holding a signboard displaying your name. After meet and greet start to walk through the port area. This place is so-called "former Morvagzal”. Nearby is Poti Yacht Club - a dock for yachts and small boats, as well as for large passenger ships or cargo from freighters and a tiny cupola church - Saint Nicholas's Church.

From the statue walk through Aghmashenebeli Street (former Lenin street during a Soviet Era). Aghmashenebeli Street goes towards Poti Cathedral (“Soboro”), crossing a bridge that connects two costs of River Rioni. Before crossing the bridge pass Nikoladze’s coast (former Stalin’s coast). The coast is a cross point of April 9 Alley where 9 April Memorial stands and is now remembered as the Day of National Unity.

Across the bridge, before reaching a Cathedral is located Small Square with 2008 War Memorial. And afterward comes Poti Cathedral (“Soboro”) that is one of the prominent monuments and the only Neo-Byzantine style cathedral in the existence of Georgia. Right next to the Cathedral there is Old Clock Tower called “Nikoladze Tower”. The construction represents a 19-th century ensemble monument. In 1896, Mayor of Poti Niko Nikoladze adapted the oldest three-story structure in the town, the foundations of the Turkish fortress that lay on the side of the square opposite the lighthouse across the river, removed the wooden construction, and built a Georgian-style balcony around it. As a final touch, he put a mechanical clock on the top floor, which he brought from the Parisian horologer. Nikoladze made this tower his home for some time.

Afterward, we visit Kolkheti culture museum, which is 400 meters away within 5 minutes' walking distance. The Museum of Colchis or Kolkheti Culture is actively operating since 1933. The building stores archaeological discoveries made in Poti and thousands of ethnographic artifacts from 3000 BC, represent Colchian culture dating to the early Bronze and Iron ages.  

From here move back across the bridge to ahead towards Lighthouse of Poti, The tallest and one of the oldest navigational structures in the Black sea basin, known as the symbol of the city. Nowadays Poti Lighthouse is a functioning navigation building and maintained by the Georgian State Hydrographic Service. There is a spiral staircase with 153 steps inside the construction. The visitors who can climb up to the top of the tower will enjoy spectacular views of the city from the beacon,  overlooking the conjunction of the river Rioni and the Black Sea. 

Those unable to make an ascent can stay downstairs and study the objects and artifacts associated with seafaring presented in the hall. 

After visiting the Lighthouse of Poti, It is possible to walk on a seaside (Optional) that is covered by giant rocks. Otherwise, it is dinner time.
