Zanzibar is an island situated in Tanzania and located off the coast of East Africa; it is presently a rising hotspot for tourists from all over the globe. The capital is known as Zanzibar City and it is the world’s largest producer of seaweed. Its chief exports are spices and raffia, while the tourism industry of Zanzibar also contributes largely to its economy. Founded on the 10th of December 1963, its history can be traced back to the 19th century when it served as an important trade centre for spices and slaves.
Zanzibar has been heavily influenced by Arab, Persian, Indian, and European cultures and this is visible in its architecture; Stone Town is the city’s older remains. The city’s main features are its carved doorways, winding lanes, and minarets. Islam is the predominant religion of the island.
