The ‘Red Terror’ Martyrs Memorial Museum

‘As if I bore them all in one night, they slew them in a single night.’ These were the words spoken by the mother of four teenage children all killed on the same day by the Derg, as she officially opened the small but powerful ‘Red Terror’ Martyrs Memorial Museum in 2010. Over a couple of rooms

Merkato Addis
Central Market

Wading into the market chaos known as Merkato, just west of Addis’ center, can be as rewarding as it is exasperating. You may find the most eloquent aroma wafting from precious incense. You may also find that your wallet has been stolen and that you’ve got stinky excrement on your shoe. Some people say it’s the largest market in Africa, but as its exact boundaries are as shady as some of its characters, this is a little hard to verify.



Lion of Judah

Lion of Judah is one of the greatest monuments in Addis Ababa. It was made in the image of a golden statue of the Lion of Judah. The statue is set on a pedestal made from granite. The portraits of the greatest emperors are near the statue as well. From here, the widest street of Addis Ababa – Churchill Avenue begins. This statue has an interesting history. It traveled a lot and was taken to Rome by the Italians. During a ceremony of fascists, an Ethiopian leader killed many Italian fascists when he saw the statue from his country standing in a square in Rome. Lion of Judah represents the ancient monarchy and is today dedicated to that brave Ethiopian patriot.
