Accra, Ghana

Accra is the capital and the largest city of Ghana, as well as being the executive, financial, and educational center of Ghana. It is situated on the Gulf of Guinea. The Portuguese first settled on the coast of what is now Ghana in 1482. Europeans - British, French, Dutch, Swedes and Danes, in addition to the Portugese, arrived at various centuries and built forts here. Independence was gained in 1957.The word Accra comes from the Akan word nkran, which means the black ants that are found amply in this region.
