    Lets see what I can do later today, that album is exported as "short side 1080px" iirc. Wouldn't pixel peep those, as the resolution is not the greatest possible even on originals.


    Only boat trip was the dinner :) Most of the pics are done by just walking around the city.

    House of Justice in Tbilisi. It was opened in September 2011.The building is divided into 7 parts accommodating different offices. As in many state institutions of Georgia, the walls of this building are transparent, which means the clarity of the government authorities’ system. The House of Justice accommodates the National Bank of Georgia, the Ministry of Energy and the Civil Registry of Georgia. The services of issuing ID-cards and passports, marriage and birth registration, property registration, etc.The concept of the house is to unify several government departments under the same roof for effective and accessible provision of services to the citizens.
