The capital and largest city in Senegal, Dakar has a spectacular Atlantic coastline and a thriving music scene and culture. Its rich ancient history can be traced back within the city, with its numerous traditional remains and Old World landscape. Many expats who move to Dakar enjoy the rich history that the city has to offer, such as its narrow medieval streets, alongside the changes that modern life has brought to Dakar. By connecting with other expats through InterNations, you will gain an insight into the culture of Dakar, including highlights such as Lake Retba, an incredible and unique rose-colored lake.
