The biggest part of architectural sights is located in Gastown Street. This is where miners built their first houses. This part of the city has retained its inexpressible atmosphere of adventure. Downtown is completely opposite to the old part of Vancouver. This is a large business center with numerous modern buildings and gleaming skyscrapers. Harbour Centre Skyscraper is known as the most notable building of the district. The roof of the building is equipped with a special observation deck with panoramic views of the city. All visitors are welcome to reach the roof of the skyscraper using the external elevator. From there they will be able to enjoy views of the city from a bird's eye view.
Business district is the location of one more sight - the Aquarium, which is considered one of the most beautiful aquariums in the world. Its opening took place in 1956. Since then hundreds of thousands of visitors have arrived here to see rare inhabitants of seas and oceans. Anthropology Museum is by far the most famous cultural institution in the city. The museum is located just a few steps away from British University. The museum’s walls hold a priceless collection of exhibits that throw the light upon culture and life of various Indian tribes. Visitors will get acquainted with history of the city in Museum of Vancouver, and beauty connoisseurs will be interested in visiting Museum of Art.
