What is the capital of Uganda?
Kampala is indeed the capital and largest city of Uganda, located almost in the center of the country, near Lake Victoria.
The city has a rich and culturally diverse history, being once the capital of the Ugandan kingdom. Many historical buildings still bear witness to this era, such as the Kasubi Tombs, the Ugandan Parliament, the Ugandan Court of Justice and the Naggalabi Buddo coronation site.
Kampala is home to over 1.5 million people and is considered the most livable city in East Africa. The city offers scenic views and a variety of wildlife, being located near the largest lake in Africa. The city developed from a pre-colonial capital called Kibuga, where the royal palace of the king (kabaka) of Buganda was located, and is situated on a site of hills separated by swamps where markets were held.
