Freetown, situated on the Atlantic coast of West Africa, is the capital and largest city of Sierra Leone. Vessels dock at its large deep-water harbour QE II Quay, not far from the CBD with its modest high rise buildings, backing on to the low hills of the hinterland. The harbour is situated on the estuary Sierra Leone River, formed by Port Loko Creek and Rokel River, which is between 4 and 10 miles wide and 25 miles long. Freetown city has a population of 1.2 million, a tropical climate, and its official language is English, though Krio is the lingua franca of the city.

The city was founded by freed repatriated American slaves. Freetown became a British Crown Colony in 1808 and the country became a constitution republic in 1961. The country’s bloody civil war (1991-2002) gave the background for the 2006 movie Blood Diamond staring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The city has an abundance of historical attractions, including the Cotton Tree (linked to the city’s establishment in 1792), King’s Castle (with inscription ‘any slave who passes through this gate is declared a free man’), Fourah Bay College (the oldest university in West Africa), and the National Railway Museum. Other sights to visit are a number of mosques and the local Big Market (for local artisans’ works).
