Remains of a 1st-century bath, built with hewn stone, have been found on the territory of Borjomi. It seems that Borjomi mineral water has been used for healing since ancient times. In the XVI-XVIII centuries, the constant attacks of the Ottomans on the Borjomi Gorge destroyed this region and the existence of mineral waters was forgotten. Borjomi was first mentioned in historical sources in the 19th century. Its foundation was conditioned by the rediscovery of mineral waters. At the beginning of the XIX century, two mineral water deposits were found in the territory of the current Borjomi Park, dwellings were built nearby and this settlement was named Borjomi. This territory belonged to the Avalishvili family, and in 1871 it was handed over to the Viceroy in the Caucasus - Michael Romanov. A two-story palace was built for Romanov on the left bank of the Mtkvari River. In 1890, the industrial casting of "Borjomi" began. In 1892-1895 a palace complex was built in Likani and a large park was arranged. In 1894 the Khashuri-Borjomi railway line was laid, and in 1898 the Borjomi hydroelectric power plant was put into operation. By the end of the 19th century, several enterprises were already operating in Borjomi. Borjomi received the status of a city in 1918. Today the city is well-equipped and very attractive for tourists.
