The exuberant capital of Senegal (West Africa) was once a French overseas territory. Dakar is a friendly and thriving seaport on Cape Verde Peninsula (westernmost point of Africa). It is a city where contemporary skyscrapers are mixed with ancient colonial buildings, excellent museums, art galleries and animated street markets. French is the common language here, though with many tribal dialects much in evidence. Goree Island, former main assembly point for slave shipments to the New World is a ferry ride away and offers a fascinating museum and elegant mansions. Within easy reach, too, are some beautiful Atlantic beaches. Nearby N'Gor features good snorkelling.
Dakar was founded in 1857 by the French, and gained importance from the completion of a railway linking it with the city of Saint Louis in 1885. In 1902 it replaced Saint Louis as the capital of French West Africa and was a French commune until 1924, when it became a dependency and part of Senegal in 1946.
