The island state of Fiji lies in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, more than 2,000 km from the Australian mainland and consists of a total of 332 individual islands, of which only a good third are inhabited. Fiji has about 900,000 inhabitants and is called “Viti” in the language of the natives. The main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu cover almost 90% of the country’s surface and, like most of the Fiji Islands, are of volcanic origin, while the smaller islands were formed from coral reefs. In total, the island state with a coastline of 1,129 kilometres and 18,333 square kilometres of wonderful scenery is waiting to be discovered. The highest mountain in the archipelago is Mount Tomanivi on the island of Viti Levu, at 1,324 metres. The capital is Suva and other important cities are Nasinu, Lautoka, Nausori and Nadi.
