The city is built on the edge of the Ébrié lagoon, on several Peninsulas and adjacent islands, connected by bridges. It has 3,796,677 inhabitants according to the 2006 census, making it the most populous city in West Africa after Lagos (Nigeria) and one of the most inhabited on the African continent.
With the start of the civil war in 2002, the city changed from one of the most prosperous and peaceful cities on the African continent to one of the most dangerous cities on the continent, with a dangerous increase in crime and frequent uprisings against the foreign population.
