Just off the Persian Gulf, a small archipelago, Bahrain, is situated. The state consists of 80 natural and artificial islands and features desert landscapes, ancient ruins, and modern architecture. Bahrain served as a trade centre in antiquity, and now, its city centre, Manama, is a major financial hub in the region. During your visit to Bahrain, you can explore the Dilmun artefacts at the Bahrain National Museum, browse the antiques at the traditional markets, and catch some sun at one of the many beaches.
