Morocco Destinations

MARRAKECH

Marrakech was built in 1070 as the capital of the Almoravid Empire, but today the visitors can explore a colourful mix of Arab and Berber cultures. Medina, the local market, is where every visitor of the town should take a walk. You can find everything you want, from food to clothes or handmade chairs. You can take great views of Moroccan antique artefacts at the Heritage Museum, and do not miss the Jardin Majorelle to take instagrammable pictures. It is the most famous botanical garden in Marrakech, centred around an electric blue building. For your dinner, choose one of the rooftop restaurants to enjoy local dishes with a magic sunset view.

CHEFCHAOUEN

Chefchaouen is Morocco's blue city. It is one of the prettiest towns in Morocco because of its blue-washed streets and buildings. That's why it is called "the Blue Pearl of Morocco". Take a walk and wander the blue-dyed lanes of the medina to take some pictures of this one-of-a-kind town. The best place to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of Chefchaouen is at the Spanish mosque, which sits on a hill. If you want to learn more about the history and culture of Chefchaouen, you can visit the ethnological Kasbah Museum. Tip of the trip: Do not miss visiting local hammams and experience traditional Moroccan massage.

FES

Fes is one of the most ancient cities in Morocco, often referred to as the country's cultural capital. The oldest and largest Medina in North Africa is located in Fes and it is named a UNESCO world heritage site. Exploring the chaotic Medina is like stepping back in time. You can find towers of spices, traditional handicrafts and tanneries. Chouara Tannery is the oldest one in the world, where it operates exactly as in medieval times. In the centre of the Medina, you will also find the Bou Inania Madrasa. It is one of Fes' most architecturally beautiful theological colleges and the oldest one, built in the 14th century. At the end of the day of sightseeing, enjoy the sun setting behind the city, drinking a beverage at a rooftop bar.

CASABLANCA

Casablanca is Morocco's largest city and it offers every visitor the experience of a mix of modern urban life enriched with rich cultural traditions. Explore the traditional side of the city in the Old Medina, which is a charming and photogenic district full of old-fashioned ambience. On the northern tip of the Medina, you will find the landmark Hassan II Mosque. It is a piece of architecture set on a platform overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the second-largest mosque in whole Africa. Do not miss the famous café of the movie Casablanca, as long as a signature cocktail in a sky bar, looking down the magnificent view of the city.

TANGIER

Tangier is situated on the Maghreb coast leading to the precise point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea. Wandering around the old Medina of the African city, you will find the Grand Mosque of Tangier. One more main attraction near the Medina is the Kasbah Museum, a restored sultan's palace in all its glory. To gain the opportunity to experience aspects of the local culture, you should visit traditional hammams and explore the city's seaside with an exciting camel ride, which is a lifetime experience.
