Informations

The Cairo Tower (Egyptian Arabic: ??? ???????, Borg El-Q?hira) is a free-standing cement tower in Cairo, Egypt. In 187 m (614 ft), it has been the tallest structure in Egypt and North Africa for approximately 50 years. It was the tallest structure in Africa for ten years before 1971, when it was surpassed by Hillbrow Tower in South Africa. One of Cairo's famous modern monuments, sometimes considered Egypt's second most famous landmark following the Pyramids of Giza, it stands in the Gezira district on Gezira Island in the River Nile, near downtown Cairo.

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.
