Male

Male - description of the city:

Male is one of the smallest capitals in the world; it occupies an area of only two square kilometers. However, in this city, which occupies almost the entire island of the same name, lives a third of population of all the islands - about 90 thousand people.

A tourist, here on tour, will be impressed by the contrast of Male compared to other islands. After the tropical paradise of little-inhabited islands, it impresses with its skyscrapers and highways - there are even no natural beaches. However, recently, in the southwest of the island was made an artificial recreation area, which is often visited by people who live and work in Male - especially in the evenings when it gets cooler. But tourists come here not to lie on the beaches.

The main street of the city is an embankment Boduthakurufaanu Magu. Here are government buildings, banks and offices. In its middle is the Square Jumhooree Maidhaan, to the right of which, the quay № 1 (presidential) and № 9-10 (ferries to the airport) are situated.

Entertainment, excursions and places of interest in Male:

The capital is not rich in attractions, but you should certainly visit: the National Museum in Sultans Park, a shady park Jumhury-Maidan, the Muliage Palace (1913). The most revered shrines of the country are the Medhu Ziarat Chapel, the tomb of the national hero of the country Mohammed Takurufanu, the Islamic Center with the Grand Friday Mosque, the Old Friday Mosque with a unique minaret and the tombs of national heroes and members of the royal family.
