Eritrea’s capital has been a seat of civilisation since the 12th century, when a collection of villages came together to form a powerful and influential trading centre. Today, Asmara is an eclectic and energetic city with the focus still very much on trade and commerce, but with a progressively emerging tourism scene.
Asmara may be a little off the beaten track for all but the most adventurous travellers, but the journey is well worth the effort and travellers flying to Asmara with Qatar Airways will find a trip to the city both rewarding and inspiring.
Italian influences in Asmara are still visible from the old colonial days, but alongside these ornate buildings, visitors will see an increasing number of modern constructions, demonstrating the forward-thinking nature of this city.
Asmara’s Italian architectural footprint can clearly be seen in the city’s most popular street called ‘Independence Avenue’ and colloquially known as "Kombishtato". Here you’ll find a wealth of cafés and boutique shops, and the city’s long boulevard is punctuated at the south end by the towering Nyala Hotel, the tallest building in the city.
Behind the hotel you’ll find the National Museum, which houses collections of Eritrean art and a host of ancient artefacts charting the six millennia of history of the country. The museum makes an interesting spot for an afternoon of sightseeing, and presents a good opportunity for visitors to learn more about the culture of the country. For a more in-depth understanding of Eritrean life, travel 20km out of the city centre to the village of Tselot (which means ‘Prayer’) – a carefully preserved local village that shows visitors what Eritrean life is like beyond the city’s borders.
Visitors not looking to exit the city scene just yet can enjoy scenic views overlooking the plain surrounding the city, at the Biet Ghiorghis Zoo and Park on Massawa Road back in Asmara.
