Over its more than a thousand-year history, Marrakech has managed to visit the status of the capital of Morocco, to experience prosperity, oblivion and once again become one of the main cities of the country. The power changed here often, and each new dynasty brought its own vision to the architecture. However, a number of objects, such as the Medina or the Qutubiya Mosque, have managed to survive to this day.
In the last century, Marrakech began to attract Europeans. They were amazed by the local culture and measured lifestyle, and the guests did not remain in debt to the city. The artist Jacques Majorelle created an amazing garden, and the Dutch anthropologist Bert Flint presented the Tiskivin Museum to the Moroccans — a collection of rarities from all over North Africa. Even the famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent was awarded the museum for his contribution to the development of Marrakech.
