The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Angola
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
The former Portuguese colony of Angola has not yet fully opened up to tourists. To get a visa, any European (and Russian) citizen needs to collect a large package of documents and pay more than $200. There was a civil war in the country for a long time, and the economy is still recovering with the help of foreign investments and oil exports.
Angola is interesting, first of all, by natural sights – there is a magnificent oceanic coastline of 1600 kilometres, several national parks. Architecture lovers will be interested in ancient Portuguese forts, preserved since colonial times.
An amazing combination of traditional way of life and modern rhythm of life can be observed in the capital city of Luanda, as well as in other major cities – Cabinda and Tombwa.
