His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, opened the oldest and most significant heritage site in Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Hosn. The historical cultural site was re-launched after the completion of a reconstruction and renewal project that was conducted by the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi.
The site includes four connected areas, the Al Hosn Palace, the National Consultative Council, the Cultural Foundation, and the House of Artisans. Earlier a centre of fishing and pearl fishing, the Qasr Al Hosn located in the centre of the city of Abu Dhabi, transformed to one of the world’s modern international cities. There will be a week-long celebration in the site from 7th to 15th December 2018 with free tours, events and musical performances to bring the site’s history to life and offer visitors a glimpse of Abu Dhabi history and its people.
