Visitng Addis Abeba will begin with seeing the orthodox cathedral of the Holy Trinity. It is the most important church in Ethiopia. In this church, there is a mausoleum of the last emperor of Ethiopia – Haile Selasje. his wife is also buried there. Then, we will see the National Museum, that is said to be one of the most important museums in whole Sub-Saharian Africa. 3,2 million-years old bones of our grand grand …. ancestor – Lucy, are one of the most famous exhibit of their collection. The attention of visitors is drawn by a rich collection of insignia of emperor and churches, costumes and weapons. The oldest exhibits are rock sculptures and inscriptions from the times of Queen Saba, found near Aksum and in today’s Eritrea.
The ethnographic museum, that is a next stop on our trip in Addis Abeba, is located in the University. It was found and managed by Polish scientists, professor Stanisław Chojnacki. Probably the most interesting part of the exhibition is a collection of crosses and icons. The museum should be visited by amateurs of folklore instruments, since the collection of them gathered in the museum is impressive.
The lunch break will take place in the restaurant serving Ethiopian dishes and local beer. e.g in “Ambassador” with a large garden.
