About Eritrea

Eritrea, officially known as the State of Eritrea, is a northeastern African nation that borders the Red Sea. It is surrounded by Sudan to the west, Ethiopia to the south, and Djibouti to the southeast. Spread across 117,600 square kilometers, Eritrea is known for its diverse topography ranging from the arid desert of the Danakil Depression to the fertile central highlands and the coastal plains by the Red Sea. Asmara, the capital, is celebrated for its Italian modernist architecture, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and evokes a sense of stepping back into the 1930s Italian Art-Deco era. Eritrea's long and complex history, dating back to the ancient Kingdoms of Punt and Aksum, has witnessed influences from various empires, resulting in a cultural tapestry woven with influences from its native ethnic groups and foreign powers like Italy, Britain, and the Ottoman Empire. The nation achieved independence from Ethiopia in 1993, following a 30-year war. Eritrea's economy is primarily based on agriculture, with teff, millet, and sorghum being major crops. The country is also known for its rich array of wildlife, featuring species such as the African wild dog, elephants, and various types of monkeys. Despite its rich heritage and natural beauty, Eritrea is often shrouded in discussions of its human rights record, however, it remains an intriguing destination for those in search of off-the-beaten-path experiences.
