Place description

"Burj Khalifa" ("Arab. برج خليفة — Khalifa Tower", until 2010, was called "Burj Dubai" — the "Dubai tower") is a skyscraper height of 828 meters in Dubai, the tallest building in the world. The shape of the building resembles a stalagmite.

The opening ceremony was held on 4 January 2010 in the largest city of the United Arab Emirates — Dubai. The building was planned to open on 9 September 2009, coinciding with the opening of Dubai metro, but the opening was moved to January 2010 due to reduced funding from the developer.

July 21, 2007 — the tallest building in the world. 19 may 2008 — the tallest ever building in the world (before this record belonged to the fallen in 1991, the Warsaw radio tower). The exact height of buildings is 828 m (with the number of floors 163).

The ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, the current Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, at the opening of the 828-meter skyscraper, known worldwide under the name "Burj Dubai" ("Dubai tower"), renamed it, dedicating the building of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa Ibn Zayed al-Nahyan. "Now and forever, this tower will be named "Khalifa" — "Burj Khalifa"" he said.
