  • Lisbon&apos;s World Fair was special because it hosted a record 130 countries and international organizations, was the 100th international exhibition since the Great Exhibition of London in 1851, the last one of the 20th century, and coincided with the 500th anniversary of Vasco da Gama&apos;s arrival in India and the United Nations&apos; "Year of the Oceans." The theme was "The Oceans: A Heritage for the Future," and the entire area at the eastern end of the city&apos;s waterfront was rebuilt for the event. When it was over, the new urban district was dubbed Parque das Nações (Park of Nations), and is now one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in Europe. <br />
  • Queens was established in 1683 as one of the original 12 counties of New York and was named for the Portuguese princess Catherine of Braganza (1638–1705), who was at the time queen of England, Scotland, and Ireland. <br />

  • Parque das Nações (Park of Nations) The futuristic architecture of Eastern Lisbon is a complete contrast to the city's old quarters. Most of it was built by innovative architects for Expo 98, the World Fair that took place in Portugal's capital between May and September of 1998
  • The stunning Oriente Station was designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and was finished for the Expo '98 world's
  • Oriente Station is one of the world's largest stations, with 75 million passengers per year which makes it as busy as Grand Central Terminal in New York. It encompasses a Lisbon Metro station, a high-speed, commuter and regional train hub, a local, national and international bus station, a shopping centre and a police station.
  • Parque das Nações (Park of Nations) Lisbon's World Fair was special because it hosted a record 130 countries and international organizations, was the 100th international exhibition since the Great Exhibition of London in 1851, the last one of the 20th century, and coincided with the 500th anniversary of Vasco da Gama's arrival in India and the United Nations' "Year of the Oceans."
  • Two striking twin towers designed to look like giant sailboats are apartment and office buildings named after two of Vasco da Gama's ships, São Gabriel and São Rafael.
  • St Gabriel Tower at “Nation’s Park” (120m tall) - Structural steelwork and composite slabs for the suspended floors. 24 floors, residential, S. Rafael’s twin
  • Vasco da Gama Shopping Centr
  • Vasco da Gama shopping mall
  • St Rafael’s Tower
  • The theme of Lisbon's World Fair was "The Oceans: A Heritage for the Future," and the entire area at the eastern end of the city's waterfront was rebuilt for the event. When it was over, the new urban district was dubbed Parque das Nações (Park of Nations), and is now one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in Europe.
  • Outside the towers is one of the biggest works of art in the district, the monumental “Sun-Man” by Portuguese artist Jorge Vieira which is a 20-meterhigh steel sculpture evoking a human figure
  • To tour the area, visitors can jump on a toy train that passes by the main attractions every twenty minutes, or ride the cable car that runs the full length of the site, parallel to the river, while giving commanding views along the way
  • Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre This modern shopping mall is hailed as the finest in Portugal, with 164 shops, 36 restaurants, 10 movie theaters, a health club, and a playground. The shops keep hours that benefit almost all customers: They're open daily 10am to midnight
  • Other attractions include a modern casino, water gardens, a viewing tower, a marina, and a number of bars and restaurants with outdoor seating overlooking one of the world's longest bridges The Atlantic Pavilion concert hall

  • The Expo 1998 mascot, named Gil, was conceived by the Portuguese duo of painter Antonio Modesto and sculptor Artur Moreira. The name, after Portuguese navigator Gil Eanes, was chosen by high-school student Jose Luis Coelho.
  • The biggest icon is the Vasco da Gama Tower built as a viewing tower but that in the last few years was expanded to become a hotel
  • Vasco da Gama Tower and Vasco da Gama bridge, a cable-stayed bridge flanked by viaducts and range views that spans the Tagus River in Parque das Nações
  • The Lisbon Oceanarium’s conceptual design, architecture, and exhibit design was led by Peter Chermayeff (at Cambridge Seven Associates). It is said to resemble an Aircraft carrier, and is built into the pier on an internal sea. Chermayeff is also the designer of the Osaka Oceanarium, one of the world's largest aquariums, and many other aquariums around the world
  • A statue of Catherine of Bragança by American artist Audrey Flack. Meant to be a replica of a bigger statue that was to be placed in New York by the Hudson, it remembers the Portuguese princess who became queen of England and whose husband named Queens (New York) in her honor.
