  Moroni, Capital City

Moroni is the capital and the largest city of Comoros where the maximum population resides. The city is located in the western coast of the island of Grand Comoros, Ngazidja, at the northern end of Mozambique Channel.
The city of Moroni abounds in tourist attractions featuring some old narrow and winding streets which reflect the Swahili architecture. As the city was under the Arab influence centuries ago, it houses the famous grand mosque “Vendredi” Mosque. The beach of Mitsamiouli is also in the vicinity. Tourist attractions in Moroni include sightseeing, water sports and other activities. The mountainous region of Moroni provides some great sightseeing. These areas are the habitation of several rare animals that could only be found in the islands. There are different kinds of insects and a dozen bird species to be seen in Moroni.
Water sports facilities in Moroni are offered to tourists who can enjoy deep water near the islands, coral reefs, long sandy beaches and fresh water streams.
 
     
  Vendredi Mosque
“Vendredi” Mosque is a major tourist attraction in the country capital. Situated next to the port, it provides a fascinating glimpse of the entire city from its top. The mosque is the result of a long process of Islamic history in this Indian Ocean’s island. The huge Arab influence in Comoros started in the 11th century in successive waves of settlers. Noted for its unique Comorian architectural style, it is a symbol of the rich cultural and historical heritage of the country. Apart from its internal architecture, it is also noted as a favorite spot where most common people meet over the mosque entrance steps.

 
     
  Mount Karthala
The more adventure lovers can climb up to the top of the Mount Karthala. Guides to Mount Karthala are available from M'vouni or Boboni, south of Moroni.
