Abu Dhabi with its approximately 1.5 million inhabitants is the capital of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates. Since the 1970s, a chessboard-like master plan has transformed the city into a modern metropolis thanks to the revenues from oil production. Besides the modern skyline with many skyscrapers, the Sheikh Zayid Mosque is one of the city’s most famous landmarks. It is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest in the world.
