The exotics of Morocco

This country, bounded by the cold Atlantic Ocean and the warm Mediterranean sea, took in both Arabic and European traditions.

The most visited city of Morocco is Marrakesh. Here you should walk around Medina – the old town. The map of this area looks like a maze, as it was built back in the Middle Ages. At the Jemaa el-Fnaa square, there is always music, since street performers here never stop entertaining their audiences. Among other landmarks of Marrakesh are the Majorelle Garden, the Koutoubia Mosque, and the famous gardens of Menara. Also here are the Saadian Tombs, the resting place of numerous Saadian sultans and people of their circle.

To list some of the other popular places of Morocco, there is Casablanca, the popular resort whirling with festivals and parties, and you can also visit Agadir with its beautiful beaches, or Essaouira – the favorite resort of surfers.

The strong>country guide will also advise you to find some time to visit the capital of Morocco – Rabat. Here you can see the king's residence, medieval mosques, and themed museums, as well as many parks and different architectural landmarks. Lastly, the city of Fes will surprise you with its streets and districts which haven't changed since the Middle Ages. Surprisingly, family crafts are still strong here, and they are still passed on from father to son.

You can go round all the country using public transport: buses and trains.
