#LANDMARK  #CHECKPOINT

The customs checkpoint is situated at the Georgian border to Turkey, at the shore of the Black Sea. With its cantilevering terraces, the tower is used as a viewing platform, with multiple levels overlooking the water and the steep part of the coastline. In addition to the regular customs facilities, the structure also houses a cafeteria, staff rooms, and a conference room. The building welcomes visitors to Georgia, representing the progressive upsurge of the country.
