Eritrea – short description:

Situated on the Red Sea on the coast of Northeast Africa, Eritrea borders with Djibouti, Sudan and Ethiopia. The country stretches for nearly 1,000 km along the Red Sea, while in the interior, mountainous landscapes prevail. The capital Asmara boasts several mosques and churches, notably the Al Khulafa Al Rashiundin Mosque. The languages spoken are Tigre, Tigrinya, Arabic and English.

Throughout the country there are many examples of the Turkish and Egyptian colonial periods offering several interesting architectural sites. The Italians also left their trace by greatly influencing country’s cuisine.

Eritrea has numerous natural attractions with its magnificent wide beaches in the Province of Denkali and underwater world beauty, notably the Dahlak Archipelago that is now a national park, boasting more than 200 islands with flat reef gardens and a diversity of fishes, with excellent scuba diving and snorkeling conditions. The land wildlife is also plentiful and one may spot lions, baboons, gazelles, elephants, ostriches and turtles on the beaches.
