Dubai Frame has been awarded with a Guinness World Record title as the “World's Largest Frame."
Dubai Frame said on its Twitter account, “We're proud to announce that we've hit a #WorldRecord for the World's Largest Frame as per the Guinness World Record…”
The Frame is an award-winning cultural landmark and museum, is home to the UAE's history, heritage and the metropolis it has become.
The Dubai Frame is a 150-metre-high, 93-metre-wide structure built to resemble a huge picture frame, through which landmarks representing modern Dubai such as Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa can be seen on one side, while from the other side, visitors can view older parts of the city such as Deira, Umm Harare and Karama.
Recently, Dubai Frame has been recognised at the MEED Projects Awards as the 'Best Leisure Tourism Project'.
The award underscores the unique position Dubai Frame occupies among tourist and urban attractions around the world, with its architectural design that has caught the attention of a large number of visitors to the emirate.
Talib Julfar, CEO of Infrastructure Services Sector at Dubai Municipality, said that Dubai Frame has become one of the most modern cultural and entertainment attractions in the country since its opening in January 2018 and has attracted over a million visitors from around the world within the first year of its opening.
