In a country that is largely desert, Kuwait-City is a great place to spend a vacation. This beautiful city has plenty to offer; for instance, you can visit the Kuwait Zoo, where you can see animals from all over the world. The National Museum, in the North of the city, shouldn’t be missed.

Even though during the Iraqi occupation many museum pieces have been stolen and either damaged or not at all have been reduced, this museum is definitely worth viewing. It allows exhibit pieces from the bronze age to the Islamic period. In Kuwait-City is the great mosque, with the highest minarets of the country; 74 metres high! This beautiful building can receive up to 12000 people for prayer.

When you want to spend a day walking around quietly, to enjoy nature or the Green Island, this is the perfect place to have a walk or to picnic. With a good connection to the mainland, you can access this artificial island in no time. Are you wondering how Kuwait looked like before the oil was discovered? The replicas of 19th century houses in place, which can be found in the old town.

In a portion of these houses people live today. Need more culture? Then go by at Beit Lothan; Here is regularly feature exhibitions by local and regional artists and in the nearby garden you can enjoy a cup of tea or a shisha. To end you stay in this city in a great way, you may want to visit the Kuwait Towers.

This construction work received the prestigious Architecture Prize Aga Khan Award in 1980 and offers a wonderful panoramic view of the city.
