City Example

Dubrovnik

The historic and beautiful town of Dubrovnik, with its old port and magnificent fortress and walls, presents a breathtaking panorama. Dubrovnik was one of the most important centres of trade with the Eastern Mediterranean during the middle ages. The old town centre is vibrant and beautiful, with its marble streets and baroque buildings, and the ancient city walls once protected a sophisticated and civilised republic for five centuries. It was here that Croatian developed as a literary language between the 15th and 17th centuries.

Petronas Towers by Night

Sightseeing

Petronas Towers

Kuala Lumpur found in Malaysia

The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur are 452 meters high and were completed by the oil company Petronas between 1993 and 1999. At 172 meters high, between the 41st and the 42nd floor, the two towers are connected by a steel bridge, called the skybridge and is open to the public. The skybridge has been built on huge ball bearings to compensate for the slight oscillations of the two buildings. The sky bridge is the world's first walk-connection between two buildings at this height. Each day 1600 tickets to visit the bridge and the 86th Floor are sold. Tickets are sold on the day at 08h30 in the morning, and cost around 25 Ringits. When buying the tickets you have to hurry because usually all are sold out for the day after about two hours. There is also the possibility to buy tickets for the afternoon until the following day. In the towers are shopping centers, offices, museum, art gallery and a concert hall
