  • There is very beautiful garden on the right side of this outstanding palace you can visit in botanical garden its so special and beautiful. Please do not trow your garbage inside this place. Inside of this palace you will meet old and beautiful things from georgian culture. Like i said this place is very good to visit.
  • Can't believe I came to zugdidi to see this. Was in and out in 10 mins. Facade of building is nice. Inside is not impressive. Save your time for other things unless you're invested in the specific content offered here.
