Tbilisi - Traditional reflected in modern

Tbilisi is a city in transition.
Everywhere in the center of town you find beautiful but often very weathered traditional houses with one or more wooden balconies. One of the advantages of these balconies is that they facilitate heating in winter and make the rooms cooler in summer.

New buildings are sometimes constructed in the traditional style, especially in the district at the foot of the Narikala Fortress.

But bold modern architecture is also to be found in Tbilisi and sometimes directly opposite the traditional one.
The picture shows distorted reflections of traditional houses in the glass facade of a modern building.
