Riyadh is the capital and the largest city in Saudi Arabia. It is situated in the middle of the an-Nafud desert and was formerly known as Hajr al-Yamamah. Riyadh is a blend of the medieval and the modern, where traditional souks, interesting museums and ancient architecture are located alongside highrises, world-class malls, and restaurants.
Once a walled city, Riyadh is one of the wealthiest cities in the world. It is home to Saudi Arabia's best museums, the UNESCO Heritage site of Diriyah, Masmak Fortress and the Murabba Palace, among other major attractions. Riyadh is also home to world-class designer stores, boutiques, and spectacular fine-dining restaurants. There are also several golf courses near the city. Most sites in Riyadh are closed on Friday and Saturday (weekends) and during prayer hours, while the visiting hours are divided between single men and families.
