Rabat, population 2 million, is the capital of the Kingdom of Morocco. The city is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg.
Rabat is considered Morocco's most conservative city. The nation's capital displays civilized orderliness more akin to Europe, with its citizens quietly going about their business, void of the frantic pace experienced in other African and Arabic capitals. For some this conservativeness lacks attraction, and Rabat is often overlooked in many travelers' itineraries. However, upon investigation, this low-profile yet cosmopolitan city offers a well-proportioned package of sights, restaurants, and history within the walls of its easily negotiated and largely hassle-free centre ville, medina, and kasbah. Spend a day or two exploring Rabat's relatively clean but still maze-like medina, its adjoining cliff-top kasbah, and the tree-lined boulevards of the French-designed centre ville, and you'll discover the city's fascinating past.
