Beautiful Kigali sunrise
Kigali is the capital of Rwanda, a small country in central Africa. It is also located in the center of the nation.

It was founded in 1907 as a German colony, and became the national capital after Rwanda gained its independence in 1962.

Today, Kigali is known for its brightly colored colonial buildings and houses, rolling hillsides, role in Rwandan history, and as the seat of Rwandan government and politics.
