Away from its romantic aura, Casablanca is a city of important decisions that shaped at least one page of global history. During World War II United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill planned military strategy here in Casablanca. Even though the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin failed to visit Casablanca, the city became a think tank for the western Allies.
No matter if it was fame on the silver screen or the glory brought by past events, Casablanca is of great tourist interest today. This bustling city attracts visitors with its relaxed lifestyle and a large number of attractions to explore.
- The King Hassan II Mosque, the tallest minaret in the world and the largest in Morocco
- Old Medina, a traditional town in the north of Casablanca
- The Shrine of Sidi Abderrahman sits on the rock off shore in the beautiful surroundings of sandy beaches and remote areas
- Mahkama du Pacha, a Hispanic-Moorish building with more than 60 ornate rooms
- The Corniche, a neighborhood west of the Hassan II Mosque with scenic ocean view
Away from fun and entertainments, Casablanca is a very important city for commerce in Morocco. It expended on the exchanges of all kinds with the world's largest artificial port sitting within the city. In addition, tourism makes money for Casablanca.
As you are in Casablanca take it as it comes, with some big city problems like a cluster of autos in its center and gas-perfumed air. But Casablanca is less commercialized than it seems to be at first. The city just tries to make it all together – its modern appearance and Arabic traditions still living within its walls.
The best reflection of this tension is cuisine. It ranges from regional to international dishes, but you should try some fish dishes here, because in Casablanca the sea food is the best in Africa. Surprisingly, the city is famous for its French cuisine with even some French gourmets on a visit to Casablanca just to dine. In fact, Casablanca long thrived under French rule and took the best of the foreign presence.
