Europeans arrived in the area in the 19th century and initiated negotiations with ruling the Ngati-Whatua tribe to establish the capital of the colony. The negotiations paid off with success and Auckland was the capital until 1865 when capital credentials moved to Wellington. After that, it concentrated on commerce and developed into the world largest geographically, but least populated city with land twice size of London and population barely more than million.
The city's population is really diverse because of immigrants who relocated there for low-skilled work. Despite work possibilities declined, ethnic makeup includes the largest population of Pacific Islanders outside their homes - 152,508 people and 56.6 percent European, 18.9 percent Asian and on.
Even though Auckland grew into the largest metropolitan area in New Zealand, it still retains its provincial charm of small city with friendly and welcoming passersby at the streets. Best for strolls is the downtown area dominated by the tallest building - the Sky Tower and tiny wooden houses near beautiful parks. You can find more green areas in the suburbia alongside impressive bays and on the slopes of volcanic hills that may offer you unforgettable views of the area.
