Mestia airport among world's most spectacular terminals - Airports so beautiful you’ll want to be delayed
No one particularly likes airports, particularly when flights are delayed and tempers are frayed, the Daily Mail says.
But at least if you find yourself waiting around at one of these architectural anomalies you'll have a spectacular view to admire. The Daily Mail names some of them, including Georgia’s famous tower-shaped airport in Svaneti, Mestia:

While the Queen Tamar Airport, located in Georgia's medieval town of Mestia, measures only 2,700 square foot, it's a treat to behold - built to
look like a spaceship that has just landed in the snow.

China's Shezhen Bao'an airport, for example, was designed by architects who built it to evoke the image of a manta ray, and 'to celebrate the emotion and fantasy of a flight'.

Or Russia's Pulkovo International Airport in St Petersburg, which boasts a newly contrived 'envelope' roof, an elegant structure designed to accommodate the region's heavy winter snowfalls.

Lleida-Alguaire Airport in Spain, which cost more than £117million (€130 million) to build, is notable for its colourful tower and wood-trimmed facade

Showcased in a new book, The Art of the Airport, these terminals feel much more like modern art museums than the poorly lit, transport halls we are more accustomed to.
