Best time to visit: All Season

Medea statue is a monument to Medea, a Colchian Princess of the Greek mythology erected in Batumi, Adjara. It is located at Europe Square in the city center, not far from the Astronomical Clock and Neptune Square.

It was unveiled by the third president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili on 6 July 2007.

It is believed that on the territory of Ajara once existed Colchis civilization. Medea, who was the daughter of the king under the spell of the love of Jason the Argonaut, helped to steal a guarantor of prosperity and mascot of her people – the Golden Fleece. The couple ran on the Argo ship, which is depicted in the statue.

Also is known the fact that Medea was a skillful physician and pharmacist of her time, so science medicine was named in her honor. Today Medea statue with Golden Fleece, which is actually gold-plated, symbolizes wealth, prosperity, and connection of Georgia to the European world.
