Bordering with Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, and Ghana is the country of Côte d’Ivoire – otherwise known as the Ivory Coast. This country is known for its beaches and off-the-beaten-track experiences. This country is also home to our Abidjan Location.
The city of Abidjan is located on the Ébrié Lagoon and homes over 4 million people. The economic capital of the Ivory Coast is the most populous French-speaking city in Africa. This city is the second largest metropolis in West Africa, which leads to the assumption that Abidjan is the Ivory Coast’s capital. However, it is not. The capital city of this captivating country is Yamoussoukro.
In 1983, Yamoussoukro earned the designation of political capital. However, almost all political institutions – such as embassies – are still in Abidjan. Abidjan expanded quickly after the 1931 new wharf construction and is now recognized for its high levels of industrialization and urbanization. In 1951, the completion of the Vridi Canal helped the city situate itself as an important seaport.
Both the city and the country have many historical stories to tell, but also offer visitors with the chance to have a trip of a lifetime. Visitors heading to this exciting city have the opportunity to explore the Banco National Park, take in the Galerie Cécile Fakhoury [Contemporary Art Gallery], or walk through the Jordin Botanique de Bingerville [Botanical Garden]. However, passing through Felix-Houphouet-Boigny International Airport [IATA: ABJ, ICAO: DIAP] – the country’s largest airport and European gateway – can be a little overwhelming.
