Abidjan - Ivory Coast Highlights:
City Tour, St. Paul's Cathedral
Abidjan is the chief seaport and largest city of the Ivory Coast. It is built on a series peninsulas and islands connected by bridges in Ebrie Lagoon. Its modern port was opened in 1950, when the Vridi Canal was cut through a sandbar, linking the sheltered and relatively deep lagoon with the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Abidjan is an attractive, largely modern city with parks and broad boulevards. Stroll around the traditional Treichville district and visit the market or the the Ifon Museum containing collections of Ivorian art. Amidst the imposing administrative buildings of Abidjan's city centre rests St. Paul's Cathedral, a modern and stunning building that was consecrated by the Pope in 1985. Nearby visit the water village of Tiagba or the Banco National Park forest to the north of the city.

Abidjan was a small village in 1904, when it became the terminus of a railway to the interior; it had no port facilities, however, and growth was slow. In 1934 it succeeded Bingerville as the capital of the then French colony of the Ivory Coast, a position it retained after the colony gained independence in 1960. Although replaced as the capital by Yamoussoukro in 1983, Abidjan remains the cultural and commercial centre of the country.
