CN Tower Toronto - CN Tower Toronto information and pictures
(Canada National Tower) is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Toronto
. CN Tower is visited by 2 million people every year. Built in 1976 the tallest building on the planet is a source of pride to all Canadians. The CN Tower was build for more practical reason - the expanding of downtown and the building of skyscrapers started to cause telecommunication problems. The CN tower solved these problems. It is soaring 553 meters (1815 feet) in the sky and has 2 observation decks, 360 rotating restaurant
, the Horizons Café
and probably the most important of all, the Glass Floor
. The Glass floor was specially designed and you will have the most bizarre experience if you dare to step on it. The world will be literary at your feet! The glass is replaced every year and is very safe. Nobody has ever fallen down. It has been said that 14 hippos can sit on it and it will not break, so don’t worry about it. It is located on the lower observation deck at 1,122 feet.
The Look out
is located on the lower observation deck at 346m (1,136 feet) and one of the 6 high speed elevators takes you there for only 58 seconds.
The Sky Pod
is the smaller observatory located at 447 meters (1465 feet) and is the World's highest man-made observatory. The view from there is magnificent (on a clear day you can see Niagara Falls
). On a windy day you can experience a movement because the tower was designed to be flexible and wind resistant.
The 360 Restaurant
makes one full rotation for 72 minutes. I recommend visiting the restaurant in the evening. The view is spectacular.
Every year in October an Annual stair climb
in support of the United Way is conducted. The participants climb 1776 steps to the top of CN Tower.
