Skyscrapers and towers of Abu Dhabi
“Aldar HQ” is a building that attracts attention with its unusual architectural form among all the skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi. It houses the office of Aldar. The surface of the concrete building 110 meters high has a symmetrical bend, making the skyscraper look like a seashell.
Inside the building is equipped with innovative automated systems. They are intended for the life support of the city. The skyscraper is considered an architectural masterpiece.
“Capital Gate” is another high-rise building erected in 2007-2011. The “leaning tower” reinforced with mesh has a façade consisting of glass panels in the shape of rhombuses. The office building is a 5-star hotel.
Al-Bahar and Etihad towers are skyscrapers built from environmentally friendly materials. Built in conjunction with Arup Engineers (Britain) in 2012, two al-Bahar skyscrapers are called twins on the east side of the city. Their walls on the outside are sliding entrance groups, driven by solar energy. In them, the Arabian style successfully harmonizes with an ultramodern design.
If you go to the embankment of the Persian Gulf, you can see 5 skyscrapers. These are the towers of Etihad, the highest of which reaches 300 meters. They are reserved for offices, shops, restaurants and the hotel, and the 74th floor of one of them provides the Observation Deck at 300 platform for a panoramic view.
Sights of the island of Yas
The most popular in the emirate of Abu Dhabi is the island of Yas, which used to be a fishing village.

The opening of the Ferrari World theme water park in 2012 is connected with the automotive legend of the Ferrari brand. Attractions are not only there, but also in the water park.
