Bujumbura Overview

Bujumbura is the capital city of Burundi. The city lies at the northeastern corner of Lake Tanganyika and is Burundi's largest city and its administrative, communications, and economic center.

A 10-year civil war ended in 2005, and nearly all of the country lives in relative peace. The area was colonised by Germany at the end of the 19th century, and there is still architecture dating from that period of Burundi's history, including the Postmaster's House. Other attractions include three museums and the Islamic Cultural Centre. There are excellent caf├ęs and restaurants throughout the city. There is also a colorful market, the best in the country.
