The country of Nigeria is a place, which retains all of its historic beliefs, traditions and religious trends. Thus, you can find many ancient sites here that are still considered sacred among the inhabitants of this country. The nature of Nigeria and the rich history of the Nigerian people contribute to the attractiveness of this destination. The forest that grows along the Osun river is considered sacred among the inhabitants of this country, who speak the language of Yoruba. This is because the local people believe that a goddess of fertility, Osun, lives in the forest. According to their beliefs, the goddess protects the land and presents the people with crops.

Tinapa, the main business class resort in Africa is located in Nigeria. The concept and implementation of this ambitious project belongs to the governor of Cross River State in southeastern Nigeria. Following this example, a number of other resorts are being planned in Nigeria.

Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, is home to about 170 thousand people, with the exception of the suburbs with a population of 600,000 people. The geographical location of the city is very easy to find on the map, as it is situated to the south of the famous Rock Aso, the monolith formed by water erosion. Perhaps this is the only famous attraction associated with the capital city. Also, there are a couple of tourist sights, worth looking at. They are the Nigerian National Mosque and the National Christian Centre. Abuja is known to have some very nice parks.

It is the most expensive city in Nigeria, but it is not clear why the outskirts of the city do not even have sewers. The poorest residents of the capital live there, and there is virtually nothing to see.
In the south-western part of Nigeria, there is a beautiful resort city of Ibadan. It is beautiful not because of being linked to a variety of remarkable architectural monuments, but because this city is located in the heart of the agricultural district, where the principal occupation is the cultivation of African cocoa.

A metropolis of Lagos occupies almost the whole territory of the eponymous state and consists of a large number of districts separated by highways. The main attraction is the variety of outdoor markets, which occupy vast areas in Lagos. Everything is mixed up here in the most peculiar way, with all the vendors and buyers making a deafening noise. Here you can buy everything, and sometimes at a very reasonable price, especially if you know how to bargain. Of course, Lagos has a lot of modern two-storey supermarkets, mostly located in the fashionable district of Victoria Island and in the downtown area. The city blocks in this district have a lot of offices of glass and concrete, respectable restaurants and casinos. Lagos is often called the capital of shopping in Nigeria.

The unique natural heritage of Nigeria, Jos Plateau, is a jungle of greenery rising from the towering relict rocks with flat tops and steep slopes distorted by erosion. Externally, they resemble the famous 'Pillars' in the state of Utah in the United States, but are composed of rocks of gray shades and contrast vividly with the surrounding greenery of the rainforest. Here one will find some of the most famous reserves, including Borg, Kviambana, Yankari, and others. Upon the whole, Nigeria is an interesting place to go to, located off the beaten track and offering authentic travelling experience.
