The Stone City of Zanzibar is a thousand-year-old city with history and culture. Islamic style churches, mosques, local architecture. Old city gates, mottled houses. Crowded streets, noisy markets, noisy crowds. The seaside town, which integrates black, Islamic and Indian cultures, is worth seeing.
The most famous part of Zanzibar Islands is Stone City, and the most distinctive part of the city is the gate of Stone City. The residents here pay much attention to the facade, even if the house is rude, and the door of the family must be carefully made. Each door has its own characteristics. Stone City is very small. If you only visit Stone City fast, you can finish it in half a day.
One of the world heritage sites in East Africa is also called the City of Cloves. Stone City in Zanzibar is a coastal commercial city built by Swahili people in East Africa. The stone city of Zanzibar has deep winding paths, noisy markets, many mosques, and splendid Arabic houses. The tall wooden doors of the urban buildings are covered with copper nails. The gorgeous patterns are exquisitely carved and have a typical Arabic style. Stone City has preserved well the ancient town buildings. These exquisite and distinctive buildings combine different cultures of Africa, Arabia, India and Europe. This culture has lasted for thousands of years.
We had a good time. Two days by the sea. Stone City 2 days. No one came to ask for money. Safety. In Africa, it's not easy.
There is history and beauty. The small square at dusk has local characteristics. It's worth coming back.
Stone City is located on Zanzibar Island in Tanzania, just in the port, very prosperous. The architectural style is European and Arabic, especially the wooden carvings of many buildings, such as doors and eaves, are exquisite. There are churches, former slave trading centers, hotels, and a Chinese restaurant. The taste is good. What is worth recommending?
Stone City keeps ancient buildings intact, with deep winding paths and beautiful scenery. There are a lot of carvings on wooden doors. These hand-carved works of art can reach hundreds of kinds. After hundreds of years of vicissitudes, their existence more clearly reflects the luxury of the time.
Sang Island is suitable for high cost-effective island! Stone City is perfect for photography. There are many souvenir shops and winding paths that can be visited for a long time. Without maps, we sometimes walk around and meet a fantastic store. We meet a small ice cream shop, which tastes unexpectedly good. If you know something about Tanzania Blue, you can buy a few, the price is similar to that of the capital, or even lower. But we should pay attention to the Tanzania blue in Tanzania. Cutting is generally not good. We should pay special attention to the selection.
Stone City, the old capital of Zanzibar, has a history of hundreds of years. The old fortress stood by the sea, full of vicissitudes of life. Walking in the alleys of the old city is like traversing time and space. It's worth recommending the old post office and the souvenir shop opposite.
I think Stone City is the greatest humanistic advantage to distinguish this beautiful island from other islands.
