My city Casablanca is the economic capital of Morocco, and the largest city in Morocco. You can find everything you need there. Located in the central-western part of Morocco bordering the Atlantic Ocean, it is the eighth-largest in the Arab world. Casablanca is Morocco’s chief port and one of the largest financial centers in Africa.

Casablanca is a place where modernism meets tradition; one could enjoy both what the Old Medina has to offer from markets that sell local products to mosques with beautiful architectural designs, as well as the fancier streets. It is also known of its perfect weather that is never too hot nor too cold, which makes the stay even more enjoyable.

My city requires you to stay alert at all times, but what’s beautiful about it is the fact that it combines the traditions of Moroccan culture and modernity. Its citizens enjoy both culture and the latest technological inventions. It’s very known for having the best job offers in every field.

My city is very crowded. It can be stressful and overwhelming. They have to be okay with noisy streets and lots of traffic. But on the brighter side, they can find the best opportunities for their career. They can also meet people from different backgrounds and different ethnicities. It has the same vibes as New York City. Very upbeat. Everyone is busy. Very much polluted but still has its own charm and magic.

anybody who will move to my city should taste the moroccan food and visit the casablanca’s monument not forget going to the beach as well. There is also the old city to discover and going through its tight street and finally I recommend those visitors to go seeing the great mosque of HASSAN 2.

Casablanca is very beautiful, but it is an economic city so it has only business tourism and has many archaeological sites and this city has the largest mosques in the world and this mosque is the first mosque built on it by the Atlantic Ocean and has a small and very old castle.

Casablanca is the heart of my country, it’s one of the most beautiful cities i’ve ever seen. Casablanca is a place that never sleeps, a very large and big city that lets you get lost in it’s streets almost like a labyrinth, however, it can be quiet dangerous sometimes especially at night so keep in mind not being alone when visiting the city.

Casablanca (or White City), the largest city in Morocco. Economic capital, it is on the Atlantic coast about 80 km south of the administrative capital of the country, Rabat. Casablanca, the country’s third largest tourist city, tells you about its colonial past through part of its architecture remained intact. A lively city, it also hosts a large number of artistic and economic events throughout the year. Casablanca is the image of Morocco that is making great strides towards development and modernity!

Casablanca, Morocco’s commercial centre, tends to come lower down on the tourism list, behind the likes of Marrakech and Rabat; however the city’s French colonial legacy, entwined with the traditional Arab culture, ensures there’s lots of diverse things to do and see. Alongside the art deco buildings, and old stone medina alleys, visitors can find museums, palaces.

Living in Casablanca is a privilege for many moroccan people. In fact, it offers many jobs in different fields, such as economy, finance, engineering and many others. It is also a city which combines many cultures and even nationalities. There are many places to go for leisure, such as cafés and restaurants and one can go sightseeing as well.
