Which country is Casablanca in?
The largest city in Morocco (about 3.6 million inhabitants) is located south of the capital Rabat. Casablanca means “white house” in Arabic. For a long time Casablanca was the capital of the Berber Empire. Between the 12th and 15th centuries, Casablanca had been an important pirate base. At the end of the 15th century, the Portuguese occupied the country.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Casablanca experienced an economic boom and replaced Tangier as the most important port. Under the rule of the French, Casablanca was developed into an economic center. Stroll along the beautiful Corniche, visit the imposing Hassan II Mosque, or marvel at the old Royal Palace. There is a lot to see – even if the international city has only a few historical buildings. Perhaps you also want to get an idea of the city, which became known through the Hollywood film of the same name “Casablanca” from 1942.
The name Casablanca means “The white House” in Spanish and “Dar el Beida” in Arabic. Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco. It is located south of the capital Rabat directly on the Atlantic coast. About 3,200,000 people live in the city proper and more than 4,000,000 people now live in the Grand Casablanca region – which also includes the suburbs. In total, well over 7.2 million people live and live here, making the Casablanca region one of the most densely populated areas in the whole country. The city of Casablanca is the most important commercial and industrial center of Morocco and at the same time the largest port in North Africa.
