The tourist attraction of Bangui is a beautiful structure with a nice history. It’s well worth a visit!
The coronation place of: Jean-Bédel Bokassa, the lunatic of all lunatics and the first "emperor" of Africa, who unfortunately made Central Africa world famous. This place commemorates a dictator who flew in 30 white horses, 1.5 tons of military medals, 20,000 bottles of champagne and a golden carriage from Paris for his coronation ceremony. This place should always be there as a warning and reminder for the people of this terrible dictator
