If you have time to visit only a few destinations in the world, one of them should certainly be Morocco. This proud country in the crash of Europe and Africa will definitely not leave you indifferent. Morocco is a country of unique traditions, Berber tribes, incredible history and magic mystical cities. Here overtakes feeling that you have sailed in the Biblical times.
Morocco is a country of diverse landscapes, which can be seen only here. Considering that the Atlantic Ocean is to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the north, this country has a long coastline that attracts many tourists. Conversely, The Sahara Desert, which stretches across its southern boundary and the Atlas Mountain delineates the country’s border with Algeria to the east, discovers to the tourists a whole new dimension of this mystical land.
The Climate of Morocco is different depending on the area in which you are. Large cities are in the zone of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean climate, with long, hot summers and mild winters. It’s a beautiful scene in the fall when approaching Marrakech, the peaks of the Atlas mountain are covered with snow, and at the foot of the mountains, the temperature is 20 to 25 degrees during the day.
The Capital City is Rabat, but one of the most exciting cities and the most visited by tourists is certainly Marrakech – The Red city
Marrakech is also called the Red City because of red brick buildings from which, by law, must build all objects. It represents an interesting blend of modern and traditional. You will experience the real Marrakech, if you go to a place that symbolizes most impressively this wonderful city: Jemaah el Fna Square. On this vast square, packed with anything and everything which represent this country, where everything lives a crazy night rhythm and you simply slid into its vortex, you will feel, on the most authentic way, why Marrakech is so intriguing and exciting.
Things to do
During the day this is a market where you can buy fruits, spices, food … Every few meter, you can refresh with fresh Moroccan orange juice or eat a refreshing fruit of the cactus.
During the evening and night market turns into a huge theater with premieres every few minutes. Reprises do not exist. Neither a moment spent in this vast interactive theater, be sure never happens again. Here are gathering colorful acrobats, dancers, musicians, snake handlers, storytellers, fire-eaters, amateur boxers and many others that you have not had a chance to see anywhere else in the world.
When you get tired of shopping, Marrakech offers a break in the so-called gardens of the city: the Menara, a botanical garden, Bahia, olive and palm plantations … One of the most beautiful corners of Marrakech is definitely a botanical garden “Jardins Majorelle”. This garden is a beautiful oasis of flowers, lush greenery and patios where visitors can sit and enjoy with all senses.
This enchanting country has so much more beauty and mystery that did not fit into this article, but one thing is certain: anyone who has ever visited Morocco not remained indifferent. And even those who say to themselves – “here never again,” if you bet on this – lose. They change their minds when Morocco pulled out from the sleeve some new charms … And invite you to another tea party.
