The original structure dates from 1871, a time when the Greek presence in Batumi was considerable (over 10% of the city population). After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1989, most of the remaining Greeks left the city, even though some of them had...More

The building looks modern and like many churches is heavily frequented with worshippers. Women are expected to cover their head and head scarfs are usually provided. Interesting to observe the rituals that are performed.

This is a small orthodox church located near the Piazza square in central Batumi. It might be of interest if you haven't seen an orthodox church before but otherwise is nothing particularly special. A quick visit will probably suffice.

A good experience but then I like churches. I like the smoky dark atmosphere and it provides pleasant relief from the chaos of a tourism city. Listened to a service in Georgian and it was soothing.

This is a old colourful church. The outside painting is different from most of the other churches. Dress Code applies.

The church is located next to the Piazza square and is built in 1865 during the ottoman empire. I could not get in the church because i was wearing shorts. But i have heard that it is pretty dark inside. The outside of the church...More

The interior is very detailed and interesting if you like architecture and frescoes. There are also numerous paintings. The lighting with the frescoes is interesting and worth a stop if you are already in the area. Please be respectful of those who may be worshiping...More
