Mozambique is a South African nation whose long Indian Ocean coastline is dotted with popular beaches like Tofo, as well as offshore marine parks. It is popular for its fresh seafood. Because Mozambique was a Portuguese colony in the past, the Portuguese influence can be felt while strolling the streets of its capital, Maputo City. Mozambique is also famous for its traditional music and marimba bands.
Maputo has been the capital of Mozambique since 1898. The city was previously called Lourenço Marques until the country’s independence in 1975. It is the largest city in Mozambique and the country’s most important harbour.
