A thoroughly modern metropolis with over 6,000 years of history, Sharjah is located along the southern shores of the Arabian Peninsula. All around us, natural landscape stretches from pristine seawaters to mangrove forests, sweeping sand deserts and craggy, soaring mountains. One hears greetings of ‘Ahlan wa sahlan’ exploring our timeless, treasure-filled souqs and in the streets where the scent of gahwa, our rich, strong Arabic coffee fills the air. For adventurous palates, try a camel milk cappuccino. The art capital of the United Arab Emirates, Sharjah is home to a vast timeline of human creativity and craftsmanship, from the meticulously restored ‘Heart of Sharjah’ heritage zone where Al Bait Sharjah is located to the cutting edge, contemporary works in our world-renowned Art Museum.
