There are many famous and popular sea resorts in Georgia: Batumi, Borjomi, Kobuleti. However, there are some that not every tourist has heard about. I will tell you about one of them in this publication. Namely, about the village of Ureki, 50 km from Batumi (between the resorts of Kobuleti and Poti). By bus from Batumi, you can get here in 50-60 minutes. Ureki is located in Guria at an altitude of 4 meters above sea level in the South-Eastern part of the Colchis lowland. The history of the resort is more than 100 years old, and it has been officially operating since 1971. The area of the village of Ureki is 14.5 km, the population is about 1,400 people. Batumi in Georgian means “the place where it is impossible to get rid of the cattle.” After all, until the mid-40s of the 20th century, there was virtually nothing here. After the Second world war, German prisoners were sent here to extract raw materials for metallurgy – magnetite. Once one of the prisoners (Deputy of Von Braun, the German inventor of rockets), suffering from arthritis and heart problems, noticed that the cows often ran out to the beach and lay down on the black sand. This wise captive decided to try to do the same. After a while, he was surprised that the pain in his joints began to pass. This is how the healing properties of magnetic sand in the Ureki were discovered. For consumer purposes, they started transporting sand, which is why within 15 years the dunes of magnetic sand with a height of 4-5 meters completely disappeared. After that, the export of sand stopped, and a resort was founded on this territory.Most hotels have staff who speak Russian and English, free Wi-Fi, a TV, a safe and a refrigerator in the room. The type of food you can choose at your discretion. As for entertainment in Ureki, there are few of them. Standard sea fun you will find (banana, scooter and boat). Of course, there are shops, cafes, and a market. The mountains are an hour and a half away. The closest in 10 km is the Musicians ‘ Park in Shekvetili with 37 sculptures of famous Georgian, classical and world singers, dancers, and musicians. They start singing and playing music as soon as people approach them. You can also admire carved wood figures of animals and people, walk by the fountains. In the evening, lanterns are lit in the Park and fireflies playfully twinkle with their radiance. The Miniatures Park with 58 main sights of Georgia is located 5 km from the Musicians ‘ Park. If desired, you can combine visits to these two parks. About 30 km from Ureki is the large Tsitsinatela Park in Kobuleti with 38 attractions. The name of the Park translates as “Firefly”, since it starts working from 18: 00 to 00: 00, so it twinkles with all the bright lights in the evening. The Park has many cafes, benches, greenery, palm trees, a fountain and flower beds.
