Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, welcomed in the new year with an appropriately Dubai-scale fireworks display. The light show was accompanied by a performance by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra playing on the Burj Steps, an arena-style venue extending from the building.
The Downtown Dubai event reportedly attracted 1.7 million visitors, according to the local media. (For the record, the population of Dubai is about 2 million.)
