A holiday spent in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), gives you the chance to explore its wide range of offerings. This city is also the Abu Dhabi Emirate’s capital. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi is the largest of all seven emirates of the country. Archaeological excavations carried out in the areas surrounding Abu Dhabi have revealed that the region has been inhabited since the 3rd millennium BCE. The discovery of fresh water became the reason for migrations of the Bedouin tribes in the late 18th century and one of them was the Al Nahyan family. In recent times, this is the ruling family of Abu Dhabi.
