Thanks to the glass walls, you can observe how the modern georgian police is working, without even going inside.
How to see the transparent police station in Tbilisi
In 2003 Georgia commited itself to fighting corruption. The police were disbanded and new people with a spotless reputation were recruited. The glass walls of the police stations and some public institutions became a symbol of transparency of the authorities. In addition to symbolism, the new design also fulfills a practical function. Open spaces, separated only by glass partitions, do not permit unscrupulous employees to give and take bribes.

You can look at one of these station on the streets of Tbilisi. The easiest way is to find the Public Service Hall, which is located in the center of the city, next to the river Kura. This is a big building 28 000 m², divided into 7 parts. One can easy recognize it by the roof-petals.

Another house with glass walls is the building of Ministry of Internal Affairs. It resembles a long curved wave. There are also no curtains, no jalousie, and large spaces are separated by glass partitions.

How to do?

1. Сome to Tbilisi.
2. Walk along the central streets of the city. You will certainly come across one of these buildings. Ask the locals if there is such station nearby.
3. The main ones - Ministry of Internal Affairs and Public Service Hall - are located on the Naberezhnaya Street, 2 and Gulua, 10 respectively.
