Where is Bahir Dar Located?
On the south-eastern shore of Lake Tana we come to Bahir Dar (also Bahar Dar). The city is one of the most beautiful on our Tour through Ethiopia. On the one hand, it is wonderfully located by the lake,
on the other hand, we find here neat, palm-lined streets. Wide walkways along small shops and restaurants invite you to stroll and blue Tuc Tucs replace air-conditioned Taxis.
What Country is Bahir Dar in?
The capital of Amhara province received the UNESCO Cities for Peace Prize in 2002. New industries and jobs have increasingly attracted land refugees to the city. With intelligent development aid, housing for the growing middle class was built.
Their simpler dwellings, which became vacant as a result of the move, served as accommodation for newly arrived land refugees. Thus, the emergence of Slums was counteracted sustainably.
