You will have opportunity to get acquainted in just one day with plants that are representatives of the humid subtropical regions of Transcaucasia, New Zealand, Australia, the Himalayas, East Asia, North America, South America, Mexico and the Mediterranean.

This trip will certainly fill you with sense of peace, as a walk along paths of evergreen plants, the flavours of flowering exotic plants, singing of birds, sound of sea - all this together calms down and fills soul with light and warmth.

Also you visit a very interesting place: a church built of sea stones. According the legend a man in memory of his son, who was taken by the sea, next to place of his death, built a church of sea stones. From this place is offered sea magnificent view. Here you can think about meaning of being or immerse yourself in inner thinking.

Petra Fortress. Once on fortress site there were settlements. Archaeologists have identified cultural layers. The earliest dated back to late Bronze Age - Early Iron (II - I millennium BC). Petra fortress (Greek "rock") was founded by Emperor Justinian I.


During "Lazi Wars" (541-562 A.D.), fortress was captured by Persians under the command of Khosrov I. In 549 Byzantine army under command of Dagisfey made attempt to repulse the fortress. But this military company failed. Only after end of next phase of war with Persia, Byzantines managed to regain control of Petra, which was subsequently destroyed by them. Perhaps it was no need in fortress.
