Ancient Greek legends told of a fabulously wealthy land where Jason and the Argonauts stole the Golden Fleece from King Aeetes with the help of his daughter Medea. It was a distant land that was reached by the Black Sea and down the River Phasis. The actual site of this legendary kingdom has never been found but the archaeologists believe that in Ajara existed the ancient civilization of Colchis. The main attraction, which is closely linked with the myth of Argonauts, is ancient Gonio Fortress. We invite you to join us in a journey back in time, experience the beautiful and interesting past of Ajara, and see modern Batumi with its imposing architecture and magnificent Boulevard.
