Adiss Abeba

Addis Ababa, the capital of modern ethiopia and gateway for most tourists, is the political and commercial capital of the country. Now a city of 4 million people, it was founded by Emperor Menelik in 1887.
The Menelik Mausoleum  1911, in the old Baata church, it serves as a tomb for princes and martyrs of freedom. Built to house the tomb of Emperor Menelik II, it also includes the graves of members of his family and the Emperor Haile Selassie.
Addis Ababa is built in the foothills of Entoto, and the panorama from the peak (3200m), either by day night, is a breathtaking spectacle. The church of St Mary overlooks the entire city and the surrounding area. The Museum, with its historical exhibits is well worth visit.
