Casablanca to political capital Rabat
Rabat is a fascinating Moroccan city worth to visit. It has an important list of cultural and historical sites which most of travelers fall in love with. It abounds with a sense of exotic mystery, interesting history, beautiful vistas, and unspoiled beaches. Alike other Moroccan cities, Rabat is also divided into two parts; the old medina and the new modern area. Both are easy enough to navigate if you are used to Western cities, while being clearly different from those Western cities.
Rabat is the political capital and the main administrative center of Morocco, as well as the fourth imperial city. It is a curious mixture of the historical tradition of the past and present modernity. The establishment of Rabat dates back to 12th century by the Sultan Abd Al-Momin, Al Muhads dynasty.
The laid-back Moroccan capital of Rabat is all too often overlooked in favor of its more vibrant neighbors, but the coastal city is more than just a political and administrative center and makes a worthwhile walking day trip to explore all of its historical and cultural attractions the city has to offer for its visitors. Without the frantic traffic jams and frenzied souks that characterize many of Morocco’s big cities, Rabat feels more like a provincial town than a bustling city, but this polite and self-effacing nature is all part of its charm.
This is one of the cities easy to explore on foot, strolling along the tree-lined boulevards of the French Centreville; shopping for souvenirs and sampling local cuisine in the medina’s many shops and restaurants…
