DOWNLOAD CITY GUIDES

Muscat is one of the few cities in the Middle East where one can still feel the signs of a rich heritage. The city was as very important trading point in the ancient Silk Route, between Africa, Europe and Asia, a multicultural heritage which is still very present in its people, cuisine and architecture today. Muscat means ‘safe anchorage’, and the city provided shelter to different tribes and foreign powers such as the Persians, Portuguese and the Ottoman Empire. Today, Muscat offers a vibrant economy, a multicultural experience with a strong Omani warm and welcoming population. The opening of the Royal Opera House and the National Museum adds a new layer to the cultural offer of Muscat.
