A modern city, it serves dual purposes as being both the capital city of the African Union and fourth largest city in Africa as well as being a gateway to the ancient and almost mythical past of Ethiopia. Situated in the foothills of the Entoto Mountains and standing 7,726 feet above sea level, it also the third highest capital in the world. A city of global importance, it houses the headquarters for the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. As a major city, it also has a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene. Visitors should try the unique flavors of the Ethiopian wat, a stew like dish served with a flat spongy bread called injera.
