Ethiopia has a proud and long history extending to the known beginnings of humankind. The Axumite kingdom was one of the great civilizations of the ancient world and has left behind the mystery of the great obelisk found at Axum. In the late Middle Ages great religious civilizations flourished in many parts of the country, particularly at Lalibela where churches cut out of massive monolithic rock testify not only to great faith but also to great architectural skills.
In the former capital of Gondar many significant castles speak of the same legacy. All these would be enough to make Ethiopia a fascinating place to visit and travel through, but Ethiopia has so much more to offer.
The past comes alive in Ethiopia in the form of strange and beautiful monuments and ruins built centuries ago, which have been preserved intact to modern times. At Axum you will see 2,000-year-old obelisk carved out of a single piece of granite, weighing hundreds of tons and standing 27 meters tall.
