It's named after the ‘place of dreams’ and the capital city of Bahrain, Manama offers an interesting mix of both Arabian and Persian cultures which shaped the history and way of life of its people. The prosperous economy of Bahrain is not solely reliant on oil but it has diversified in sectors like education and tourism, evidently making it one of the most sought-after destinations in the Gulf. Manama is nowadays a major hub for finance and communications organisations. It has still to catch up with the commercialised sites of Doha and Dubai but you will find incredible gourmet and traditional restaurants, shows, the Bahrain National Theatre and Beit Al Quran – an interesting art collection showcasing a striking and large collection of Qurans and other religious artefacts including calligraphy. Other attractions of interest to include in your tour of the city are the Al Fateh Mosque and La Fontaine Centre of Contemporary Art which showcases regional and international contemporary artists - this beautiful space hosts regular breath-taking exhibitions.
