The tower is equipped with a special lightning rod and annually it withstands hundreds of thunderstrokes.

CN Tower, Canada Since its opening, CN Tower has remained the tallest building in the world for more than thirty years; it has lost the championship quite recently. The main attractive feature of the tower is its observation deck, which is annually visited by over two million people. View of the city opening from the lookout is just fantastic; its glass floor through which you can also watch the busy streets with miniature cars and buildings enhances the feeling.

The grand staircase of the tower of 2,679 steps is a venue for the annual marathon. Next - Ostankino Tower
