Welcome to my Gallery of the Central Region

For European visitors, the Central Region is certainly one of Ghana's most popular tourist destinations – it is, if you like, the perfect entry-level region to warm up with the country. This is mainly due to the fact that a European culture, or at least familiarity with it, is most pronounced here, which is due to the fact that there has already been the longest and most intensive contact with European powers before the region has been in contact with European powers. was finally completely colonised. The capital of the region – Cape Coast – was consequently also the capital of the colony for a long time and still has a distinct western character. Another reason for the popularity is also the narrowness of tourist attractions, which are easily accessible on much well-developed routes also from Accra and thus the international transport hub. With Cape Coast Castle, Elmina and Kankum National Park, the region is home to some of the country's most relevant tourist highlights, complemented by several other romantic coastal towns, beautiful beaches and distributed castles with exciting history.
I myself have spent most of my stays in the Central Region, especially in the immediate vicinity of Cape Coast, to Accra. Everything here seems a little quieter than in the metropolis of millions Accra and you are much faster here in the middle of nature and on beaches where you can easily walk far without encountering such severe restrictions as in Accra. Overall, the region forms a very pleasant mixture of nature and culture, of tension and tranquility and of a decent portion of history.
At the same time, the region is also one of Ghana's most economically successful. A disproportionately high proportion of Ghana's GDP is generated in the Central Region. The level of education here is also very high in comparison and the infrastructure very well developed, both with the historically great importance of the region in connection with cooperation but also with the European powers and especially the British in of the colonial era. In Cape Coast, many people were trained to accompany important posts in the colony and also had the opportunity to train abroad and gain experience in Europe or America. This also led to a strong self-image to a greater expression of an independent will to design. It is not for nothing that the independence movement really picked up speed here after the Second World War.
