Toronto - If you want to see the tallest building in the world today, you have to travel to this town. There we can find the Canadian National Tower, which is 1 815 feet tall, 170 feet wide at the base. On the top of the concrete shaft, there is a steel transmission mast. Inside there are important parts and machinery of the tower. These are television, radio and telegraph broadcasting facilities, two observation rooms and a revolving restaurant, which does a complete turn every 1 ½ hours. At 1 570 feet there`s another observatory area, called the Eagle`s Nest. There are 4 lifts to take tourists up to the observation rooms. In just 1 minute, you reach the top. In strong winds, the Empire State Building sways from side to side. But The CN Tower is designed to resist the strongest winds.
