Year: 1976. Height: 533,33 meters.
CN Tower with a height of 533.33 meters is the tallest building in Canada and one of the tallest buildings in the Western Hemisphere. The tower was built in record time, as preparation for construction has begun in 1973 and the official opening took place in 1976. The building looks very fragile; however, only for a rough estimate, it’s able to withstand wind speeds of 420 km/h. The tower is equipped with a special lightning rod and annually it withstands hundreds of thunderstrokes.
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.
Space Deck lookout is situated at an altitude of 447 meters, so in sunny weather its visibility can reach 120 kilometers. Another attractive tourist attraction is Under the Sky center, located at an altitude of 330 meters. Here, there are several viewing platforms too, as well as restaurants with panoramic windows and other entertainment venues. The grand staircase of the tower of 2,679 steps is a venue for the annual marathon. Next - Ostankino Tower
