Yamoussoukro

3.2
Unlike many of the world's cities with infrastructure trying to keep up with population, Yamoussoukro has no such problem--many of the city's sprawling six-lane highways and hotels were built before anybody lived here. It is the dream of former President Felix Houphouet-Bolgny that his former ancenstral village would one day be the country's capital. Though his dream was never fully realized, the city is the country's political and administrative capital today. It features a grid of paved roads with not much between them. In addition to the road systems, the city showcases the world's largest Christian Orthodox Church and a population of Nile crocodiles. Yamoussoukro is in Lacs Region. Put Yamoussoukro at the heart of your travel plans by using our Ivory Coast trip planner.
