Muscat is the capital of Oman, located on the Gulf of Oman (arm of Arabian Sea). Flanked by mountains, it's the nation's largest city and chief administrative centre. The waterfront is dominated by the Al-Alam palace for Oman's sultan, also built in the 1970s. The Old Town is a labyrinth of old buildings guarded by two 16th century Portuguese forts, Jalali and Mirani. Remember to visit the Natural History Museum of Bayt Al-Zubair and its collection of artefacts, Nakhi Fort and the majestic Corniche at Muttrah. Other must-see spots are the Zazawi Mosque with a brilliant 22 carat gold dome and extraordinary Al Bustan Hotel which is a palace in every way. From here it's also possible to visit the Fort of Rostaq, Bayt an Naman, Ruwi, Nizwa and Jabrin through the mountains.
Muscat has been of great importance since the 6th century BC, when the Persians controlled the port. From 1508 to 1650 it was under Portuguese domination, and subsequently the Iranians gained control of Muscat. In 1741 the city became the capital of independent Muscat and Oman. In 1970 the name of the country was changed to just Oman.
Highlights: Old Town, Sultan's Palace, Nakhi fort, Bayt an Naman
