Nairobi is the city under the sun. It is the capital city of Kenya and is geographically located between the other two cities in Kenya, Mombasa and Kisumu. Nairobi has a lot of beautiful things about it; from the good mild climate it enjoys, a game reserve where you can easily visit the wild animals, mixed friendly society, good investing and working environment etc.
The architecture in Nairobi is one of a kind. Its a city that expresses and embraces art through its architecture and what better way to bring it out than through photography! Africa Knows has taken the initiative to give you African Royalty Free Images via Nairobi’s architecture.
Talk about being unique, you will definately get that in Nairobi. Its buildings are made out of well thought designs that depict it native African origin. The Kenya International Conference Center is a good example.The building borrow’s its design from the traditional african hut.
The statues of Kenyan heroes uses art to communicate to the current generation about their country’s history. Good example is the statue of Tom Mboya on Tom Mboya Street, statue of Dedan Kimathi on Kimathi street, statue of Kenya’s first president - Mzee Jommo Kenyatta at KICC and the one below on Kenyatta avenue. Statues like the one at the Supreme Court of Kenya is not one of Kenya’s heroes but an artistic expression of art.
When the sun sets, the city maintains its beauty. The only thing that changes is that its allure is taken to a whole new leval with building and street lights.
Nairobi hosts the greatest Super highway in East and Central Africa - the Thika Super Highway. It is the busiest road in East and Central Africa and it has opened great channels of opportunities to the locals.
This is what i call a perfect and beautiful city.
