Capital of ancient Ashanti Kingdom
Kumasi is the historical and spiritual capital of the ancient Ashanti Kingdom. The Ashanti were one of the most powerful nations in Africa until the end of the 19th century, when the British annexed the land of the Ashanti into their Gold Coast colony. In Kusami are many special buildings such as the Manhyia Palace Museum and the National Cultural Centre, which boasts a rich collection of Ashanti art products. The Centre is housed in a beautiful reproduction of a traditional royal Ashanti house. Here is also a wonderful market of craftsmen, where you can buy traditional Ashanti products at very reasonable prices. On the Kegetia market, one of the largest in Africa, sellers from all over Africa come to trade their merchandise. You can buy anything here: leather articles, pottery, clothing, tropical fruits and vegetables. The varied city with a rich culture!
