Information about Muscat!

Students canoeing after Arabic studies

Muscat is the capital of Oman. It is also the seat of government and largest city in the Governorate of Muscat.

The population of the city is over 630 000. The rocky Western Al Hajar Mountains dominate the landscape of Muscat. The city lies on the Arabian Sea along the Gulf of Oman. Low-lying white buildings typify most of Muscat´s urban landscape, while the port-district of Muttrah, with its corniche and harbor, form the north-eastern periphery of the city.

The city has numerous mosques including the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, Ruwi Mosque, Saeed bin Taimoor and Zawawi Mosque. A few Shi´ite mosques also exist here.

Muscat has a number of museums for example Museum of Omani Heritage, National Museum of Oman. Recent projects include an opera house. One of the most notable new projects is the Oman National Museum. It is expected to be an architectural jewel along with the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.

Muscat´s economy, like that of Oman, is dominated by trade. The more traditional exports of the city included dates, Nacre, and fish. Many of the souks of Muttrah sell these items and traditional Omani artefacts

Muscat features a hot climate with long and very hot summers and warm "winters".

Football is the favorite sport in Oman.
