Petronas Twin Towers (Kuala Lumpur)

In 2010 i visited Kuala Lumpur , its' beatiful. i really like that.

Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world until Taipei 101 was completed in 2004, as measured to the top of their structural components (spires, but not antennas). Spires are considered integral parts of the architectural design of buildings, to which changes would substantially change the appearance and design of the building, whereas antennas may be added or removed without such consequences. The Petronas

Twin Towers remain the tallest twin buildings in the world.
Petronas towers are two twin skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur which time the tallest building in the world. 88-storey high tower designed by Cesar Pelli in 1998. Petronas towers stand as tall as 452 meters or 1483 feet above calculated up to the peak. In between the two towers was built a bridge (skybridge) that connects the two towers on 41st and 42nd floors. This bridge is the destination of tourists who come to visit the Petronas Towers with a limited number of tickets (about 1200 pieces). This bridge is also used for evacuation if an emergency occurs in a tower so that residents can move into the tower is safe.

Tower of Kuala Lumpur began construction in October 1991 and opened to the public on July 23, 1996 and inaugurated by the prime minister of Malaysia at the moment, Mahathir Mohammad on October 1, 1996. Visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery at an altitude of 276 meters while listening Audio Video Tour in multiple languages. I have time to take photos and Petronas Tower skyscraper buildings of Kuala Lumpur Tower using a digital camera.
