Rabat - description of the city:

Rabat is the capital of the Kingdom of Morocco, its political, cultural and industrial center located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. In addition, Rabat is one of the "imperial cities" of Morocco, along with Fes, Meknes and Marrakesh.

The city impresses by its unique architecture, which is a combination of Europe and the East. It must be noted that despite the fact that Rabat is a modern business center, it has fully retained its eastern Moroccan color.
