Trails Of Morocco
Morocco lays in North Africa, with its borders touching the Mediterranean Sea and Spain in the north, Algeria in the east and the Atlantic Ocean in the west, nestling in one of the most important geographical location in the World. Rabat is the capital of Morocco, while Casablanca (the city that spins a hundred dreams) is its largest city and the second largest city in North Africa after Cairo and which is also considered as the Economical Capital of Morocco.
The Morocco climate is Mediterranean in character, which means plenty of warm sunny days throughout the year. The winters are cool here. However, in the mountainous reaches of the country, the temperatures do go to extremes and it would do you good to stock yourself up accordingly.
You will get an idea about the Morocco population from the bustling marketplaces. But just for the statistics, it is the fourth most populous African country with the population figures touching 33 854 675 according to the 2015 census. The streets may be crowded in some cities but the Moroccan people are warmer and very friendly.
The high majority of the Moroccans are Sunni Muslims of Berber (Imazighen, The indigenous people of North Africa) and Arab or a mixed descent. However, the country has more of a cosmopolitan look with many French and Spanish people taking up residence here. The official Moroccan languages are Berber (Tamazight), classical Arabic, but foreigners take heart. French is spoken widely here and is still the preferred language of the financial world, a hangover of the French rule and because Morocco has become a favored holiday destination, Spanish and English are the popular languages spoken out here along with other languages such as Italian and German.
