The largest country of the Middle East is located between the Red Sea to the West and the Persian Gulf to the East. Created in 1932 by Mohammed Ibn Saoud, the country is run by the same family. The capital is Riyadh.
There is no casino on its territory. As the largest oil-producing country and the second largest exporter, Saudi Arabia is a highly wealthy country.
Its main tourist attraction is the city of Mecca, which according to the Islamic tradition is the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad. Millions of Muslims come on pilgrimage around the Black Stone within the Kaaba in the mosque of Masjid Al-Haram.
Many mosques have sumptuous architectures that deserve to be visited. The Grand Mosque, Masjid al-Qiblatain and the Quba mosque are stunning examples. Other important tourist attractions are the Citadel of Masmak, the Kingdom Center Tower in Riyadh, Mount Uhud of Medina or the Abraj Al Bait Tower, the second tallest tower in the world with 601 meters high
