The Geography Of Morocco
It is washed in the North by the Mediterranean sea and in the West by the Atlantic ocean. The Strait of Gibraltar separates Morocco from the mainland of Europe. It shares borders with Algeria. The South-Eastern boundary in the Sahara desert is not precisely defined. On the northern coast of Morocco are the Spanish exclaves Ceuta and Melilla.
In the center of Morocco is a group of mountains: middle Atlas and High Atlas. The highest point is the snow-covered peak Jebel Tub-Kal (4165 m). The main rivers of the country are Muluya, which flows into the Mediterranean sea, and Cebu, which flows into the Atlantic ocean.

The Moroccan dirham is equal to 100 centimes. In circulation banknotes in denominations of 200, 100, 50 and 20 dirhams, as well as coins in 5, 1 dirham and 5, 10, 20 and 50 centimeters. In the southern regions and in some places in the mountainous villages of the Atlas is still in use the currency of the Rial (1/20 dirhams).
Dirhams can not be converted, the export of currency is prohibited, so it is not recommended to exchange large sums at once. You can exchange currency in banks, large hotels, and some large restaurants, as well as in specialized exchange offices at airports. Currency exchange on the street and in unlicensed exchange offices is prohibited. The exchange rate is quite stable, it is the same throughout the country and is set by the state. ATMs are quite common and are located mainly near major retail outlets and banks.
Credit cards are accepted in most restaurants, in almost all hotels, and in most large shops, private traders are extremely reluctant to work with them. American Express tourist cheques are accepted almost everywhere, cheques of other systems are cashed less willingly.
The History Of Morocco
The history of the region is based mainly on the relationship between the Berbers, who inhabited it since ancient times, and various conquerors. The first foreign conquerors were the Phoenicians, who founded several colonies on the Mediterranean coast in the XII century BC. Later these colonies passed to the Carthaginians, and from the II century BC, after the conquest of Carthage by the Romans, Roman rule began in North Africa.
In the year 429, the territory of modern Morocco (Roman province Mauritania Tingitana) was captured by the vandals and in another hundred years the Byzantines.
In 682, the Arab conquest of North Africa began. The greatest prosperity reached the Arab state under the dynasties of the Almoravids and Almohads in the XI-XIII centuries.
Under the Almohads, Morocco was the center of a vast Empire that occupied the territories of modern Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, and vast territories of Spain and Portugal. However, with the fall of the Almohad dynasty, the Empire also collapsed.
The revival of Morocco – in the XVI-XVII centuries, especially under Sultan Ahmed al-Mansur al-Zahavi, whose rule is called the “Golden age” of the country. Since the beginning of the XV century, several port cities were under the control of the Portuguese and Spaniards, but by the XVII century, most cities were again in the power of the Moroccan Sultan.
In the XVIII-XIX centuries, Morocco was considered a pirate state, as in many cities the actual power was in the hands of sea pirates.
