Morocco is a very charming country located in north Africa, a real heaven of peace where the extreme beauty of landscapes meets the warmth and friendly welcome of local population.
When you visit Morocco for the first time, you will be impressed by the magic authenticity of its imperial cities, especially when you walk through the small alleys of the old Medinas and handicraft souks (traditional markets).
For most travellers, visiting Morocco means spending a short holiday in the sublime city of Marrakech, in the old town of Fez or even in the big Casablanca, the economic metropole of Morocco.
But, have you ever heard about the fascinating Sahara Desert of Morocco? It’s a completely different experience that you should try at least once in a life-time.
