Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa

Ethiopia's capital is located more or less in the dead centre of the country and is the world's third highest capital at 2,400 m. Its name means 'New Flower' and it is a relatively modern city, founded in 1887 by the Emperor Menelik II. In just over a century it has grown from nothing into a modern metropolis of several million people. Its altitude lends it a comfortable climate and throughout the year the weather is temperate with just the occasional downpour.
