Dubai is building a miniature Europe on six islands for $ 5 billionPictolic
Dubai continues to be actively built up. Now tourists will not be surprised by huge skyscrapers or man-made sandy beaches. The local government plans to build its own Europe. It will be located on 6 small islands.
Despite the coronavirus, the opening of the first of them is planned for the end of 2020. And the total cost of the project was more than $ 5 billion. We will tell you below what this miniature Europe in Dubai is.
A separate island will not become the personification of any country. Its highlight is the villas with rooms located underwater. At the same time, the walls and floors are partially made of transparent glass, so that guests can observe the inhabitants of the underwater world from the windows of their bath or Jacuzzi. The island is located right by the coral reef, so the view will definitely be unforgettable.
This island is built in the shape of a horseshoe, in the center of which is an azure-blue lagoon. It is focused on family tourism. Its guests can stroll through the tropical garden or relax on the sandy beach. Traditional German carnivals, Christmas fairs and the famous Oktoberfest will be held on the island.
The creators of this island were inspired by the ships of the Scandinavian Vikings. Several luxurious palaces with glass roofs have been built on its territory. Their total cost is $27 million. The restaurants of the palaces will serve Swedish cuisine, including meatballs and the famous sour herring.
This is a unique man-made island built in the shape of a heart. Its design was inspired by the Maldives. Floating villas surround it from all sides. Each of them will cost about $ 5 million.
A miniature man-made Venice will occupy a separate island. This is the world's first underwater resort with restaurants and hotels located underwater.
Separate villas with views of the boundless sea will be built on this island. Each of them will have its own pool and access to the beach. All villas will be built of wood, stone and glass. A huge lagoon in the center of the island will remind you of the Swiss lakes.
This is the main island of the entire man-made archipelago. It is planned to open 4 boutique hotels here - Monaco, Nice, Cannes and Saint-Tropez.
They will accommodate suites with panoramic sea views. The hotel of the same name will build an exact replica of the famous marina in Monaco.
A luxury hotel named after the Portofino resort will be located on a separate island. There are plans to build a separate marina, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and 514 aquariums. The atmosphere on the territory of the hotel will be as close as possible to the Italian spirit of the real Portofino.
The island will be decorated with terracotta buildings. The hotel rooms will be decorated in Italian style. A huge hanging garden with 31 thousand plants will be placed on the facade of the main building. It is planned to build a snow play area at the resort, where everyone will make snowmen at any time of the year.
