YamoussoukroThe new capital in the heart of Côte d'Ivoire.
The capital of Côte d'Ivoire, Yamoussoukro is a city in a hurry. Sprawling and chaotic, the city is home to a mix of people from all over the country, all trying to make a go of it in the big city. With a population of over a million, there's always something going on, from street markets to nightclubs. Yamoussoukro is also home to the presidential palace, the largest in the world, and the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, the largest Catholic church in Africa. With a little bit of effort, you can find some peace and quiet in the city's parks and gardens.
