Since its establishment in the 19th century, Addis Ababa (አዲስ አበባ) has always seemed like a magical portal, a gateway to another world. For the rural masses of Ethiopia, it was, and is, a city whose streets are paved in gold; for a foreign visitor, the gateway of Addis Ababa is on the verge of an ancient and mystical world. And yet, Addis – Africa’s fourth-largest city and its diplomatic capital – is also a sprawling city that many foreign visitors try to transit as quickly as possible. But take note: by skipping out on the contradictions of this complex city you run the risk of failing to understand Ethiopia altogether. And apart from anything else, Addis is the best place in the country to sample Ethiopian food and has some wonderful museums and places to stay.
Addis Ababa, the principal gateway to Ethiopia being a business center and a conference venue as well, is in its own right a major destination with enough tourist attractions for a day trip, encompassing the National Museum, Ethnographic Museum, Zoological Museum, Mercato—Africa’s largest open-air market, Entoto Hill, to have a panoramic view of Addis Ababa.
The Land of thousand smiles is the custodian of some of the world’s oldest civilizations, a tourist Paradise, beautiful, secretive, and mysterious; Above all things, it is a country of great antiquity, with a culture and traditions dating back more than 3,000 years.
Addis Ababa, undiscovered by many visitors, houses many international organizations including AU, ECA, UN, and other important NGOs.
