The Genbaku Dome is the ruin of the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall that was destroyed when the first nuclear weapon in human history was dropped by an American air force bomber on August 6, 1945. Because the atomic blast was almost directly above this spot, the walls of the building were partially spared from destruction, and the characteristic form of the building remained with the iron frame of the dome. Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall was located only around 160 meters from the hypocenter. The building was designed by a Czech architect in 1915 and now is the A-Bomb Dome a symbol of peace.

The best event in Vancouver that is fan for spectators and patrons. Every year the Vancouver Zombie Walk grows bigger, with more participants of all ages, ever more creative costumes and levels of GORE, and more huge quantities of blood-soaked fun every single time. The Walking Dead became a real-life. Zombies terrorized the streets in costumes to pose as the living dead. The meeting point and Zombie Walk route was the same as in past years – Art Gallery.
