Mahe Island is considered the economic and political center of the Seychelles. Travelers will find much entertainment in Victoria, the capital of the country. Besides numerous galleries, exhibitions and museums there are several interesting architectural landmarks in the city. The main street of Victoria, Market Street, is the location of such sights as the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception and the Victoria Clocktower. All buildings here were constructed in the beginning of the 20th century and are of a great historic and architectural importance. Visitors are also always welcome in the Museum of Natural History, the Victoria National Museum of History and the Botanic Garden.

There are several large nature reserves and parks not far away from that capital, such as the Royal Garden, the National Marine Park and Morne Blanc piedmont region. When describing nature attractions of the islands, it's simply impossible to fail to mention Silhouette Island. This island is famous for its magnificent equatorial forest - the largest and richest forest in the country. Despite that fact that this island is not very populated, it has everything needed for great rest. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
