Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles

Victoria is the largest town of Seychelles and one of the smallest capital cities of the world. The town is located on Mahe island, the major holiday island in Seychelles and shelters around one - third of the total population of this country.

Victoria and all the places around the town offer excellent opportunities to involve in interesting pursuits. Most of the city has been rebuilt and except few buildings like courthouse and main post office, which still have the colonial character, everything has changed from the original outpost. One can visit the Natural History Museum or the National History museum for an insight into lifestyles of a bygone era.

Other attractions in the city of Victoria include a clocktower modelled on that of Vauxhall Clock Tower in London, England, the Courthouse, the Victoria Botanical Gardens, the Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke Market.
