Travelers who are planning to visit Kuala Lumpur should definitely see one of the most spectacular architectural complexes of the city, Petronas Towers. This unusual architectural complex in the Islamic style consists of two skyscrapers 451.9 meters high; each skyscraper has 88 floors. It’s noteworthy that only Malaysian building materials were used during the construction. The opening of this architectural complex took place in 1998.

Petronas Towers, Malaysia Towers feature astonishingly harmonious and impressive appearance, their facade is decorated with 16,000 panoramic windows. Skyscrapers are constantly served by 10,000 workers; the only window cleaning takes one month. A significant part of the complex is occupied by office space. Travelers are offered to look into an art gallery. There is also a great concert hall, which became the permanent venue for the most important and special occasions.

Towers are connected with the Sky Bridge made of glass; it’s located at an altitude of 170 meters. Despite the fact that Petronas Towers aren’t the highest buildings in the world, they have no equal in their category. Those are the highest twin towers in the world, which in appearance resemble two identical huge corn cobs. Skyscrapers are daily visited by more than 300 people, so it’s worth noting that it’s necessary to buy tickets to see the architectural attractions in advance. The number of people who can remain within the walls of a skyscraper at the same time is limited. The most favorite pastime among tourists is walking along the glass bridge and visiting viewing platforms. Next - Empire State Building
