Information about Addis Ababa
The second-most populated city in Africa, located in Ethiopia is Addis Ababa. It’s the capital city yet has the status of both a city and a state. It’s often referred to as the political capital of Africa. It’s officially called the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. The African Union, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and The Federation of African Societies of Chemistry are located here. The country is populated by a large span of religious communities and contains around eighty nationalities speaking eighty languages. Addis Ababa is considered a safe city as violent or serious crimes are rare. But pick-pockets and con-artists frequent the airport and other highly populated areas.
