There are plenty of places to visit in Fujairah, one of the seven emirates of the UAE. Pretty soon, we’ll be seeing a new attraction in the emirate — a building shaped like an enormous fish!

According to Trend News Agency, an Azerbaijani company plans to construct a “Fish Centre” in Fujairah. The firm, Karvan-L Group of Companies, specializes in designing, engineering, and recycling industrial waste, among others. It has enterprises in Baku and Aghstafa, Azerbaijan.

Gafarov said that last week, Mohamed Saif Al-Afkham, head of the municipality of Fujairah, went to Baku for discussions about the project.
