Interesting facts about the African state of Ghana


Ghana can be confidently called one of the most distinctive African countries. It was on the territory of this state that the Ghana Empire existed and the incredibly colourful Ashanti ethnos developed.

As for the modern country, the history of its independence began in 1957. Ghana, formed from a couple of British colonies, was the first state in the region to develop independently.

An African republic with European traditions


Despite the fact that the country is located in Africa, many English customs and traditions are honoured here. And this applies even to the cuisine and language of communication of citizens. In addition, the vast majority of the country's inhabitants are Christians (with the exception of the southern areas inhabited by Muslims), which can also be called quite rare for this region.

Interestingly, representatives of different religions get along well with each other in Ghana. They quite often participate in joint events and ceremonies. You can meet in this country and people who continue to worship gods and spirits that are characteristic of this nation. That is why numerous shrines of animistic cults can be found in various cities.
