Meeting Point is Statue of Niko Nikoladze on the area of Poti Sea Port. The Guide will be holding a signboard displaying your name. After meet and greet, start walking through the port area. This place is so called former “Morvagzal”. Nearby is located Poti Yacht Club - a dock for yachts and small boats, as well as for large passenger ships or cargo from freighters and a tiny cupola church - Saint Nicholas's Church.
From the statue walk through Aghmashenebeli Street towards Poti Cathedral. On the way pass Nikoladze’s coast and cross a bridge that connects two coasts of River Rioni. For navigation with locals you can still use the former Soviet names of places, such as Lenini Street, Stalin’s coast, Soboro cathedral…. The coast is a cross point of April 9 Alley where 9 April Memorial stands.
Across the bridge, before reaching a Cathedral, there is another Memorial, dedicated to the fallen heroes of War 2008. Few more steps and here we are! Come to Poti Cathedral gate - that is one of the prominent monuments of early 20th c. Guide will tell the story of construction and turning the church into a drama theatre, how it transformed back to Christian orthodox church and so on.
Right next to the Cathedral there is an Old Clock Tower called “Nikoladze Tower”. The construction represents 19th century ensemble monument. In 1896, Mayor of Poti Niko Nikoladze adapted the oldest three-story structure, brought from the Parisian horologer a mechanical clock and put it on the top floor. Nikoladze made this tower as his home for some time.
Visit Kolkheti culture museum, which in 5 minutes walking distance from Clock Tower. The Museum of Colchis or Kolkheti Culture is actively operating since 1933. The building stores archaeological discoveries made in Poti and thousands of artifacts from 3000 BC. Colchian culture is dating to the early Bronze and Iron ages.
From here move back across the bridge towards Lighthouse of Poti, the symbol of the city, one of the tallest and one of the oldest navigational structures in the Black Sea basin. Poti Lighthouse nowadays is functioning and is maintained by the Georgian State Hydrographic Service.
The visitors can climb up to the top by a spiral staircase. Just follow 153 steps inside the construction and you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the city from the beacon, overlooking the conjunction of the river Rioni and the Black Sea.
Those unable to make an ascent, can stay downstairs and study the objects and artifacts associated with seafaring presented in the hall.
We finish the tour here. Walk on a seaside that is covered by giant rocks. Hope to host you in Georgia! On the roads again!
