It is a well-known fact that Burj Khalifa is not only Dubai highest building but also the highest in the whole world. However, not everyone is aware that it is not the only reason why it is so incredibly famous.
The height of this fantastic building is almost 1 km! 828 meters to be precise. It is bigger than all the other famous buildings in the world like Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Sears Tower in Chicago.
The sight of Burj Khalifa is impressive for everyone who sees it for the first time.
Speaking of being the hugest building in the Arab World and in the world as a whole there are some other records that Burj Khalifa can be proud of.

All those facts prove that this Dubai’s skyscraper is truly unique.
You could compare the weight of the building with hundreds of whales. All the material that was used to build Burj Khalifa is extremely expensive and heavy.
To get water to this skyscraper is also not the easiest job. And it is even harder to maintain it.
Its elevator is also the biggest in the world and it can also go for the longest distance ever. You can get to any floor you want within seconds which also makes the elevator one of the fastest ones.
And it will take you about 60 seconds to go all the way to the top.
During the building process there was a huge amount of workers occupied in order to get the work done as early as possible. There were more than 10 thousand people working on it every day.
The work that was done is hard to put into words. It is almost unbelievable that actual people built this kind of amazing building.
It took them six years to finish everything. The people of Dubai and the tourists were waiting for the opening for a really long time.
