Today, this relic is kept in the museum on Saadiyat Island, which definitely need to visit to get acquainted with the history of the country. On this island is also built local "branch" of the Louvre Museum and the Museum of Gugengaym, as well as a lot of interesting things.

New buildings are constantly being built up in the city didn't spoil the overall look of the city, vice versa, decorate it even more, and a large number of trees makes a man forget that he is in the desert.

Among the attractions it's necessary to mention the snow-white mosque, named after the founder of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed. Here you can see the world's largest carpet and all of the names of Allah written in pure gold of the highest standard.

But workers and foreigners here are very friendly and willing to help at any moment.

Abu Dhabi is a city which, without any doubt, is worth to visit to.
