( CNN) After six years of building, the 555 -meter-tall( 1,820 ft) Lotte World Tower opened in April, defining world-wide accounts and redefining the Seoul skyline.

Not merely is it the tallest tower in South Korea and fifth highest in the world — dwarfing the Korean capital’s next highest construct, Three IFC Office Tower, by virtually 300 meters — it’s also home to the highest glass-bottom observatory at 478 meters( 1,568 ft ).
