Addis Ababa, capital and largest city of Ethiopia, is located at the geographic
heart of the nation in the mountainous Shawa Province, at the foot of Mount
Addis Ababa, which means "New Flower" in Amharic, was founded in 1896
by Emperor Menelik II, and the city is the last in a succession of capitals
of the great Abyssinian empire dating back to the pre-Christian Axum.
Today Addis Ababa is a huge metropolis of 4 million people where modern buildings
and wide open boulevards stand side by side with historic churches, palaces
and monuments, as well as simple country-style huts.
The city is served by the modern Bole International Airport and it has a railway
connection with Djibouti.
Modern Addis Ababa also plays host to many international organizations, including
the OAU, the Economic Commission for Africa, and other multi-national bodies,
who all have their headquarters here.
Addis Ababa is the capital city of Ethiopia. It has a great weather with around 23c on average. You will find mixture of modern and cultural places and people. Good food and great coffee with special Ethiopian coffee ceremony. It is safe to move around. You can find accommodation with any sort of budget, from cheap ones to classy 5 and 4 star hotels.
I have experience Addis Ababa last February and am so surprised in its transformation for development. There in Addis i have met KING DAWIT TOURS ETHIOPIA as my facilitator and guide. i would like to appreciate his professionalism and hospitablity. I recommend you all to see the amazing city as like her name New Flower.
Dear tourists Addis is heart of Ethiopia. Every thing which exist in Ethiopia is mainly from Addis Ababa. So you should visit it to know Athiopia at all. Know ethiopia is completely changing and this change is seen almost in Addis. We are growing fast come and visit us it will be admiring thing for you. Thank you
Not to be missed:
The city of Addis Ababa is busy and lots of constructions is going on. The older parts of the city is being replaced by new buildings and the architecture is ugly: a mishmash of all foreign buildings. One needs to go to those classic route destinations to see our own ancient and medieval buildings.
Addis Ababa is a very nice city to be visited from each corner of the glob in any season a place where you can find " thirteen months of sunshine"
You will enjoy it in every aspect modern entertainment up to historical visit including the chance of looking the origin of man kind "LUCY"
Addis Ababa is a very intersting city which counted more than more than one hundred years. It also shows an expected immediate grow. The weather is confortable for anybody who comes to Addis Ababa; the people also have a greatly appreciable culture how they give respect for guests.
Addis Ababa is a poor city in the world but the people likes a guest, they are very kind & most of them are religious... etc 56% of a people lives in addis Ababa are Muslim & 39% orthodox 5% Other religions but orthodox is governs b/s orthodox is the religion of the government.
Addis ababa is the largest,the most beautiful capital city of Ethiopia with its large working people. We Ethiopians are lucky to have beautiful natural resources, landscape and interesting historical remains. Generally I have no words to express all the beauty of Ethiopia.
Life in Addis is hard but enjoyable. The budget & the goods do not match, however any type of individual with different life status can peacefully live in Addis. That makes Addis a favourable place to live & invest.
I recently moved into Addis from another regional town. Obviously, in addition to being the country's capital, Addis is the center of culture, business, etc. You can't think of anywhere better to live in Ethiopia.
