Dubai Opera is something extraordinary! This monumental building looks amazing. Like a big beautiful floating shell. Though it is called ‘opera’, many kinds of events take place here: concerts, movie premieres and screenings, performances, exhibitions and ballets. Its acoustic is incredible, as well as the lights that can create some surreal effects.
Dubai finally got its own Legoland. Huge and colorful place is a heaven for Lego lovers, and of course – especially for children. Monumental statues built entirely of Legos are breathtaking. It is well known that some people did manage to turn Lego activities into art. They say that some of the Dubai’s biggest and most popular sites will be rebuilt in Legoland. Walking through this Legoland can also be educational because some of the sculptures will represent the culture and tradition of UAE.
