The locals are also distinguished by peculiar attitude to sport. They are very reckless and never miss an opportunity to become members of various exciting competitions. However, popular sports in Dubai are completely different comparing to European countries. Camel and horse races, cockfights and other unforgettable events attract not only local residents, but also travelers. The locals are particularly fond of horses. Horse riding has always been one of the most spectacular and beloved types of sport. Every year Dubai hosts Horse Racing World Cup. The event is considered the most prestigious one in its filed. For many centuries many local families have been involved in the derivation of special breeds of horses. They share their experience with their descendants from generation to generation.
The local folklore also deserves special attention as the local music and dancing traditions are no less beautiful and original. All national holidays simply cannot be imagined without performances of music groups. As a rule, these are very exciting performances that are more reminiscent of a beautiful theater.
Indifferent attitude of the locals to jewelry has always remained one of main features of the locals. Tourists can see diversity of the local jewelry in any local market. Although the locally produced gold is often not distinguished by high fineness, we simply cannot fail to pay tribute to local jewelers as they create true pieces of art from gold and silver.
