Located at an altitude of 2400m on the Abyssinian plateau, Addis Ababa is the largest city in Ethiopia and the hub for embassies, international missions and diplomacy in Africa. The headquarters of the UN's Economic Commission for Africa, the African Union and various other delegations are located in the city.
Addis Ababa has a tropical highland climate with temperate weather and blue skies most months in the year. It is also known for its world class museums and its cultural scene. One of the most important museums in the city is the Ethiopian National Museum that houses 'Lucy', the fossilized skeleton of an early hominid.
Architectural treasures can be found strewn throughout the city. Some notable highlights include the Meskel Square, St George's Cathedral, the Imperial Palace, National Palace and the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
The Mercato District in Addis Ababa is an important thoroughfare and home to several attractions that make the city so important. It is the location of Africa's largest and most vibrant open market. This is also where Ethiopia's largest mosque, the Grand Anwar Mosque is located.
