The inclined spire of the tent is visible from almost every point of the city, and it definitely catches your eye. The building in the form of a transparent shiny tent (the largest tent in the world) surprises with its unusual architecture. Inside the complex, in addition to the shops, restaurants and cafes that would be usual for any shopping center, there is a family park with dinosaurs, as well as a unique aquatic park where you can swim in the pool with genuine ocean waves and sunbathe on the beach with sea sand.
