Borjomi Mineral Water Park

Across the river from the center of town is the Borjomi Mineral Water Park, a lovely stretch of forrest following the valley along the Borjomula river.

The park has recently been attractively renovated, with a number of themed playgrounds, a cinema, and a few amusement-park syle attractions.

There are a number of springs here too; this one is the warm water Borjomi spring, apparently one of the most health-giving waters.  A short walk away, by the river, is the cold water Borjomi spring, sour and salty and with a tang of sulphur.

Wasn't all that delicious...

Khatuna wasn't impressed...

Warm and salty and somehow sulfurous.

About three kilometers from the entrance of the park there’s a lovely clearing in the forest where there’s a thermal pool fed by a deep, warm spring.  After the brisk hike in the chilly mountain air we were rather pooped, and the soak in the warm, earthy-smelling water was deliciously refreshing.

  3. (B O R J O M I)( +995 568 73 73 61 gogias tsixe street number 4 ) The house is at the end of a very quiet street, yet very central. It opens up a beautiful view from outside the house and the upstairs room. The place holds 4 rooms or 10 beds in total. There is a cosy kitchen where you may cook your own food, drink tea or coffee on the house and enjoy already made traditional delis. The shower is comfortable, hot water is available anytime as well as washing machine. Outside the house there are few sitting areas where guests may relax, play chess and cards or snack grapes while chilling in the hammock. You may use internet on our indoor computer or free wi-fi – both are fast. If willing to explore the city and around, Niko, the manager, will be happy to tour guide you to top places such as National park, The hill of crosses, Vardzia, The Green Monastery, Rabati, Xertvisi as well as to any other cities in Georgia. If it’s hot outside and you need to refresh, don’t forget to ask Niko to take you to a beautiful spot for swimming – delta of a local river
