Description

  • Borjomi
    Borjomi  is a resort town in south-central Georgia with a population of 10,546. It is one of the districts of the Samtskhe-Javakhetiregion and is situated in the northwestern part of the region in the picturesque Borjomi Gorge on the eastern edge of the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park. The town is noted for its mineral water industry (which is the number one export of Georgia), the Romanov summer palace in Likani, and the World Wide Fund for Nature-site Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park. Borjomi mineral water is particularly well known in those countries which were part of the former Soviet Union; the bottling of mineral water is a major source of income for the area. Because of the supposed curative powers of the area's mineral springs, it is a frequent destination for people with health problems. Borjomi is also home to the most extensive ecologically-themed amusement park in the Caucasus.
  • Romanov's summer residence
    In 1862, Mikhail Romanov was appointed replacement of the king in the Caucasus. She also had a summer residence in Borjomi. At that time, the story of the medicinal properties of Borjomi spread throughout the Russian Empire. In Borzhomi new palaces, parks, squares, hotels were built. In 1894, the railway was moved from Khashuri to Borjomi, which greatly improved the movement. Before that, in the village of Borzhomi it was 8-9 hours before going to Borjomi. In 1894, Mikhail Romanov began construction of a plant in the Mineral Water Park, which lasted until the 50s of the 20th century.
