Accra is the capital of Ghana. With two million residents, it is the largest city in this West African nation as well as its administrative and economic centre. The largest shopping centre is the Accra Mall near the airport. There you can find everything that is hard to find in the rest of the city. Every day merchants from the local villages sell their products at the Makola Market, a street market that extends for quite a distance along Kojo Thompson Road. In Osu there are a few European restaurants and even an Irish pub. At the Centre for National Culture you can purchase traditional arts and crafts. This national museum houses a comprehensive collection of Ghanaian art.
