About Sights – Batumi Lighthouse

The 21-meter stone lighthouse situated in Miracle Park in the city of Batumi (Georgian: ბათუმი) on Georgia’s Black Sea coast was built by French engineers in 1882. Batumi’s first lighthouse was built in 1863 during Ottoman rule, while the Russians erected a second one in 1878.
