Abu Dhabi available on the
United Arab Emirates |
is the capital and second
most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), after Dubai. It is
also the seat of government of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, which is ruled by
Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan – the current ruling Emir of the UAE. Abu Dhabi
lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf from the central
western coast. Abu Dhabi is trying to position itself as the "Cultural hub"
of the Middle East, taking this mantle from regional cities such as Beirut,
Tel Aviv and Cairo. It is home to a number of cultural institutions
including the Cultural Foundation and the National Theater. The Cultural
Foundation is home to the UAE Public Library and Cultural Center. Various
cultural societies such as the Abu Dhabi Classical Music Society have a
strong and visible following in the city.
