Informations

The Burj Al Arab (Arabic: ??? ?????, Tower of the Arabs) is a five star hotel located in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Managed by Jumeirah hotel group, it is one of the tallest hotels in the world, although 39 percent of its total height consists of non-occupiable space. Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) from Jumeirah Beach and is joined to the mainland by a personal curving bridge. The form of the structure is designed to resemble the sail of a boat. It has a helipad near the roof at a height of 210 m (689 ft) above ground.

Informations

The Reichstag (German: Reichstagsgebäude pronounced [??a?çsta?ksg??b??d?]; officially: Deutscher Bundestag -- Plenarbereich Reichstagsgebäude pronounced [ ?d??t?? ?b?nd?s?ta?k ?ple?na?rb?ra?ç ??a?çsta?ksg??b??d?]) is a historic edifice in Berlin, Germany, built to house the Imperial Diet (German: Reichstag) of the German Empire. It was opened in 1894 and housed the Diet until 1933, when it was severely damaged after being set on fire. Following World War II, the building fell into disuse; the parliament of the German Democratic Republic (the Volkskammer) fulfilled in the Palast der Republik in East Berlin, while the parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany (the Bundestag) fulfilled in the Bundeshaus in Bonn. The destroyed building was made secure against the elements and partly refurbished in the 1960s, but no attempt at full restoration was made until after German reunification on 3 October 1990, when it underwent a reconstruction led by architect Norman Foster. Following its completion in 1999, it once more became the meeting place of the German parliament: the modern Bundestag. The expression Reichstag, when used to connote a diet, dates back to the Holy Roman Empire. The building was built for the Diet of the German Empire, which was succeeded by the Reichstag of the Weimar Republic. The latter would become the Reichstag of Nazi Germany, which left the building (and ceased to function as a parliament) after the 1933 fire and never returned, using the Kroll Opera House rather; the term Reichstag hasn't been used by German parliaments since World War II. In today's usage, the term Reichstag (Imperial Diet) refers mainly to the construction, while Bundestag (Federal Diet) identifies the institution.
