The Republic of Seychelles, an island country spanning more than a hundred islands in the Indian Ocean, is known for its almost non-existent levels of crime, high standard of living, and, of course, its breathtaking beauty.
Please find some of the more prominent locations on the islands below:
Mahé, named so after a prominent governor of Mauritius, is by far the largest island in the Republic. The capital of the Republic, Victoria, is located on the island, and as such, it has become the home to the international airport, numerous resorts, hotels and casinos.
Victoria Clock Tower
The clock tower, modeled after the Vauxhall Clock Tower of London, had been built as a memorial for the late Queen Victoria, honoring the longest rule -- 64 years -- by an English sovereign.
The Victoria Museum of Natural History
The Victoria Museum of Natural History allows its visitors to take a step back in time into the days of when buccaneers roamed the Indies, featuring displays flora and fauna of the islands, a 16th century shipwreck, and, amongst other things, the original "Stone of Possession" via which France claimed their right to the islands in 1756.
The garden is close to Victoria's town centre and covers six hectares of land. It is the home to over five hundred different species of exotic and native plants and a large number of birds, insects, reptiles and fish.
