The largest city of Ethiopia and its capital city at the same time is Addis Ababa, which in Amharic means "a new flower". It is located in the center of the country, 2400 above the sea level.
It is one of the high located capital cities in the world. According to many sources, Addis Ababa is third in such classification, after Bolivian La Paz and Ecuador's Quito. However, La Paz is not an official capital city of its country, so we can move the Ethiopian city up to the second place.

In the morning 

Visitng Addis Ababa will begin with seeing the orthodox cathedral of the Holy Trinity. It is the most important church in Ethiopia. In this church, there is a mausoleum of the last emperor of Ethiopia - Haile Selasje. his wife is also buried there. Then, visit the National Museum, that is said to be one of the most important museums in whole Sub-Saharian Africa. 3,2 million-years old bones of our grand grand .... ancestor - Lucy, are one of the most famous exhibit of their collection. The attention of visitors is drawn by a rich collection of insignia of emperor and churches, costumes and weapons. The oldest exhibits are rock sculptures and inscriptions from the times of Queen Saba, found near Aksum  and in today's Eritrea.   
Continue to ethnographic museum, which is a next stop on our trip in Addis Ababa, is located in the University. It was found and managed by Polish scientists, professor Stanisław  Chojnacki. Probably the most interesting part of the exhibition is a collection of crosses and icons. The museum should be visited by amateurs of folklore instruments, since the collection of them gathered in the museum is impressive.

The lunch break will take place in the restaurant serving Ethiopian dishes and local beer. e.g in "Lucy restaurant".

Afternoon

After lunch, we will climb the Entoto hill located 3200 m above the sea. Here located was the capital city of Ethiopia, before Menelik II moved it to Addis Ababa. The king's palace remained until today. The local museum exhibits crowns belonging to kings and church, costumes and insignia.
