Abu Dhabi's culture is rooted in the region's Islamic traditions and its foremost message of peace. A mix of international influences paired with loyalty to local heritage has resulted in a welcoming capital city that boasts a charming mix of new and old.
The emirate’s many heritage sites and iconic cultural landmarks showcase time-honoured traditions. Precious artefacts uncover the tracks of the Bedouins (nomadic Arab people) who traversed the area for centuries, taming the landscape and making the emirate what it is today.
Whether you want to soak up ancient sights in Al Ain and at Qasr Al Hosn or immerse yourself in culture at Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi is filled with timeless traditions and magical wonder!
