As Mayor of Monrovia, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our city. Liberia’s capital continues to attract visitors from all over the world and we are excited that you have decided to visit with us. While in our city, we encourage you to experience the many wonderful attractions Monrovia has to offer including the historical Ashmun Street, the National Museum, the historical Providence Island, the Atlantic Ocean, with its pristine beaches, amazing cityscape from the Joseph Jenkins Roberts Monument and the peak in Monrovia, and of course, our variety of restaurants and local eateries and bars.

As we celebrate Liberia’s 175th year of independence, we also celebrate Monrovia’s bicentennial, established by freed slaves and the American Colonization Society in 1822 and renown as the capital city of Africa’s oldest independent Republic.

On behalf of the people of Monrovia, I extend best wishes to you for an exciting visit. Enjoy Monrovia and its ‘amazing discoveries.
