The latter is the largest spherical structure in the world, which makes the original circular elevator even more attractive. The SkyView elevator is a complex of two glass gondolas that run along the southern wall of the spherical sports arena and lift the passengers to their roof.

SkyView Elevator, Sweden 16 people can ride in each glass sphere, enjoying the incredibly beautiful panorama of the surroundings during the ascent. For the tourists who like the unusual entertainments, SkyView became a popular attraction.
