Abu Dhabi

Overall Score


In the midst of the golden pink sands on the coast of the Persian Gulf is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, which is also the capital city of an identical empire. Its landmark is the spectacular riverfront, where the ultra-rare skyscrapers rise high into the sky. Among the attractions of the city, the reconstructed old farm, Kornici, is one of the most remarkable, where Arabian light boats made of teak wood are produced, the Oil Show, where audiologists talk about the phased development of the city.

The Abá Dábá area has extensive parks and planting gardens, where an irrigation system allows each planting to be watered. Theres a market near the port of Zeide with an abundance of seafood. The capitals international airport is conveniently located between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and is fully compliant with global standards.

Highly landscaped buildings along the coastline are owned by the Sheikhs Khalifa, Hamdan and Naïd. There are numerous mosques everywhere. From afar, one can see decorated minarets. The abundance of green vegetation is striking to anyone who first visits the streets of the metropolitan city. Eucalyptus and palm trees, ornamental trees and herbaceous ganzas beautify Aba Dhabi. Along the waterfront, there are picturesque picturesque benches, such as Flying Swans, Jellybirds, and Dahlala.

The contemporary city combines the past and the present in eastern markets and modern supermarkets, cemeteries and museums, schools and cultural centers. The history of the citys founding is wrapped in a beautiful legend in which the beautiful Gazelle is the main character of the story. It was the one that led the hunters who had followed it to a spring of unconventional water. Giving life to the wild animal as a reward for its life-giving power, the Arabs named the village Abu Dhabi, which means Father of the Gazelle in Arabic. Thanks to a judicious allocation of oil and gas revenues, the city has a well-developed infrastructure. The abundance of greenery has transformed Aba Dhaba into a real park city amidst the barrens of the desert.
