Abuja is the capital of Nigeria. This capital city was strategically inhabited in 1991 to contain ethnic unrests and has ever since evolved into the administrative, legislative and commercial axis of the country, besides being a multifarious tourist destination that features some superb offerings in sightseeing, historical and cultural domains. You would find the fastest-growing city on the African continent committed to defy all preconceived notions about a typical African city with its two natural monolithic structures- the Aso Rock (measuring 400-metres) and the Zuma Rock (it measures more than 700 metres but lies at less than an hour’s ride from the city). Other notable landmarks here include the Millennium Tower (tallest artificial structure in Abuja at 170 metres), Millenium Park (largest park in Abuja), the Nigerian Presidential Complex, the Ship House and National Mosque.Aso Rock
Implying ‘victorious’ in the native language of the Asokoro tribe and emblematic of Abuja city is the 400 meter high monolith called Aso Rock. It was made by water erosion through hundreds of years. It lies at less than 30 minutes drive from Abuja and is characterized by some important administrative buildings like The Nigerian Presidential Complex, Nigerian National Assembly, and Nigerian Supreme Court to its south.Zuma Rock
Best known as the ‘Gateway to Abuja from Suleja’, the Zuma Rock is a large monolith of igneous rock that rises emphatically to a height of more than 700 metres into Abuja’s skyline. It lies at less than an hour’s drive from the city and is considered a national landmark. It is also depicted on the 100 naira (Nigerian currency) banknote.The Millennium Park
The Millennium Park is the largest public park of Abuja. It is located near the former Presidential Palace and was inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003. It is neatly divided into two parts by a river, with one side depicting Nigeria's deciduous forests, rainforests and greenhouses for butterflies and tropical birds. The other side is built in a superb Italian Garden style and is concerned with the scientific aspect of this environment. Other attractions in this iconic park include a series of fountains and a number of multicolored bushes that go along in a wave-like manner.
