Founded in 1886 by Menelik II, Addis Ababa is situated at close to 2,500 meters (8000 ft.) above sea level, which makes it the fifth highest capital city in the world after La Paz, Bolivia; Quito, Ecuador; Bogotá, Colombia; and Thimphu, Bhutan. This hospitable and safe city enjoys an excellent climate year-round, with an average temperature of 25C (77F).
With a multiethnic population of over 5 million, Addis Ababa is a pleasant city with wide avenues of jacarandas, interesting museums, and one of the largest open-air markets in Africa, known as the "Mercato".
