Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, or Addis Abeba, is renowned for holding two statuses at the same time: it being the Ethiopian capital is one and second that it’s an autonomous state unity (chartered-city). Covering a comparatively small area (540 sq. km), Addis Ababa is a destination for true travelers, ready to be impressed.

Civilization existed in Ethiopia since very ancient times and this can be proved by 30 references in the Old Testament.

Addis Ababa plays a distinctive role not only in the Ethiopian scale but in the African continent in general. Just think about it: 100 embassies, EU delegation, headquarters of ENECA, African Union Office – all of those are kindly hosted at a territory equal to one-third of London, quarter of Moscow or one-eighth of Dubai.

With a population of around 3 000 000 only, Addis Ababa mixes in between 70 nationalities of Ethiopia. So don’t be surprised, if locals will each time sound different: 80 languages through close are very different same time.

Traveling across Addis Ababa means flying high. The city is located at 2300 m above sea level. In general Ethiopia is famous for its landscape, featuring 25 peaks that are over 4000m in height.

Ethiopia is the Motherland of coffee, so if you want to feel the pure spirit of this drink, pass by cozy cafes scattered around the city. The process of coffee-brewing is one of the Ethiopian customs that must be included in your travel agenda.

Typical national dishes are quite spicy and are typically enjoyed by eating with your hands. The most popular is “injera”, a yeast-risen flatbread accompanied with salads and stews. So not to seem like such an obvious “fresher”, try visiting restaurants in Addis Ababa to train your right hand in advance, as only this method of eating is allowed at a traditional Ethiopian table. Bon appetite!
