Tom West:

Many, many years ago, the city of Nizwa, located 174 km from Muscat, was the capital of Oman, its main economic and commercial center. Now it is a huge oasis of palm trees, stretching for 8 km and gradually beginning to claim the title of one of the main tourist resorts in the country.

Nizwa is famous for its ancient fortified fortress, as well as handmade gold and silver items (the choice is huge and prices are lower than in the neighboring Emirates). At the colorful market, you can buy silver jewelry and copper coffee pots, daggers, leather goods, antique gizmos and Arabian-style household utensils, as well as spices: vanilla, saffron, dried lemons. On some days of the week, a goat market is arranged on the square – it makes sense to look at the colorful action: not for the sake of a four-legged friend, but for immersion in Omani peasant life. Definitely worth a visit to anyone who loves the traditional oriental flavor!
