For many travelers, the Middle Eastern state of Oman on the eastern Arabian Peninsula is one of the most mystical and fascinating destinations on earth. Even today, the sultanate is an absolute monarchy though it simultaneously has a constitution. Most of its people live in colorful towns or small villages along the most beautiful coasts of the Indian Ocean, the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. Oman is located in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders the United Arab Emirates to the northwest, Saudi Arabia to the west, and Yemen to the southwest. In just forty years, this state, full of tradition, has greatly improved its economic and social status, while preserving its rich historical roots. Oman has much to offer, not just economically – it also stands out due to its numerous world heritage sites. Each year, curious and enthusiastic travelers are attracted to Oman to visit the Bahla Fort, the archaeological sites of Bat with their Bronze Age settlements Al-Khutm and Al-Ayn, the incredible “Aflaj” Irrigation Systems and the famous Incense Route. Oman captivates with a unique and special flair and invites you to dream. In the capital, Muscat, there is always something new to discover in the numerous markets and lively streets. The Muscat Opera awes each of its visitors with exquisite construction and fantastic acoustics.
