Located on the River Congo, Brazzaville is a city divided between industrialism--thanks to the river--and cultural attractions, which come to life through multiple festivals, galleries, museums, and art schools, like the Poto-Poto painting school.

There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Basilique St. Anne, take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Mosque, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale du Sacre-Ceour de Brazzaville, and make a trip to Charles de Gaulle House.
