Known as the ‘Northern
Star', Mekelle is one of the oldest cities in Ethiopia. The city was used as
base for the second Emperor of Modern Ethiopia, Atse Yohannes IV. The emperor's
palace is still located in the hub of the city, open for visitors and tourists.
Other than the palace, the Italian soldiers Cemetery located in Endayesus area
is worth visiting.
The city is very clean, always warm and welcoming. Strangers
can easily adapt to the city's culture and weather.
