Which country is Bahrain?
33 Islands in a bay of the Arabian (Persian) Gulf and form the Kingdom of Bahrain. To the west is Saudi Arabia, and to the south is the Bay of Qatar. Only twelve of the Bahraini islands are actually inhabited. Many islands sink in the Bay of Bahrain depending on the sea level.
The largest island was named after the entire Kingdom of Bahrain and houses the capital Manama. Most of the islands consist of some kind of limestone rock. As in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, the Bahraini area has also begun to increase the land area by sand filling. The highest point of the country is the “mountain” Jabal al Bukhan with a height of 135 meters.
The capital, Manama, is also the largest city in Bahrain. Unlike many states in the neighborhood, the Kingdom of Bahrain has not only relied on oil economically for a long time, but has instead expanded its financial sector extensively. Accordingly, the capital is characterized by tall glazed buildings, which form the international financial center of the country. Here you will find many banks.
