About Eritrea

Eritrea is a country located in the Horn of Africa. It gained its independence from Ethiopia in 1993 after a long and bloody struggle. Eritrea is known for its stunning coastline along the Red Sea, which offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the world. The country is also home to several fascinating archaeological sites, including the ancient city of Adulis, which was an important trading port in the first millennium BC. Eritrea is a multicultural country with nine different ethnic groups, and its official language is Tigrinya. However, Arabic and English are also widely spoken. Despite being one of the poorest countries in the world, Eritrea has a proud and resilient population, and it is well worth a visit for those seeking an off-the-beaten-track adventure.
