Abidjan, Ivory Coast Overview

Abidjan is the former political capital and primary economic center of the country of Ivory Coast. The city grew up quickly after the construction of a new wharf in 1931 and its designation as the capital city of the then-French colony in 1933.

Abidjan lies on the south-east coast of the country in the Gulf of Guinea. The city lies on the Ébrié Lagoon. The business district Le Plateau is the centre of the city, along with Cocody, Deux Plateaux (the wealthiest neighborhood and a hubbub for diplomats), and the slum of Adjamé on the north shore of the lagoon. Treichville and Marcory lie to the south, Commune d’ Attecoube by its extension to Locodjro and Abobo Doume and Yopougon to the west, and Gbagba and N’Gbotroya (Locodjro) called today Boulay Island in the middle of the lagoon. Further south lies Port Bouët, home to the airport and main seaport.
