Addis Ababa: (“New Flower” in Amharic), the Capital of modern Ethiopia, and gateway for most tourists, is the political and commercial heart of the Country. Now a city of 4 million people, it was founded by Emperor Menelik in 1887. The city forms a good starting point for exploring most aspects of Ethiopia, whether you fancy trawling the national museum and various imperial-era landmarks in search of historical and cultural enlightenment, losing yourself in the maze-like commercial hubbub of the Mercato (reputedly largest market), or socialising in its ubiquitous coffee shops and bars whilst absorbing the wondrously discordant home grown music that emanates from all directions. There are almost 80 nationalities speaking in various 80 languages. This is actually the grassland-biotic community. From the lowest area around the Bole International Airport amid the southern edge to the northern part of the city with more than 3,000 meters in the Entoto Mountains, Addis Ababa is in easy access to various parts of Ethiopia. The city lies at the foot of Mount Entoto, and is home to Addis Ababa University.
