If you are taking English courses in Vancouver, EC Language Centers recommend you to see this scientific, sports and industrial city from above. Why? Because its location, architecture and nature are unique. Vancouver is located between two huge snow-capped mountain peaks: Seymour and Grouse. The Pacific coast and the port are also there.
Harbour Center is the tallest building in Vancouver with an observation tower, which certainly attracts all the guests of the city. To get to the top of the tower, you can take a glass elevator, the originality of which is that it is located on the outside of Harbour Center. It takes about 40 seconds to get to the deck. And here, the unforgettable view of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island, the bay and the city itself will take your breath away. You will see it in the palm of your hand: high-rise and small buildings, amazing nature, beautiful parks and bridges.
The opening of the tower took place in 1977. It did personally Neil Armstrong, the first man on Earth to walk on the moon. The popularity of the cosmonaut in those years was prohibitive. So, it is not surprising that he was invited to open the city building. The height of the tower is 177 m, and the observation deck with a three-hundred-sixty-degree circular view is located at an altitude of 130 m.
If you are lucky, and the weather is good and clear, you could also see Baker mountain, which is in the United States, as well as diverse Canadian and American Islands.
