Muscat, the capital of Oman

Muscat is the capital of Oman. It is also the seat of government and largest city with a population of over 630,000.

A special aspect of Muscat is surely the Corniche (boulevard) along the deep blue water and the rugged rocky mountains.  A walk of about 3 kilometers. Lined with 19th-century merchants' houses and punctuated by colourful minarets, Muttrah's sweeping seafront is the city's old commercial centre. It remains one of Muscat's most vibrant areas, especially at sunset when families come out to stroll.
