Addis Ababa- the “new flower” is set at the foot of the Entoto Mountains. It is centrally located within Ethiopia as a capital city should be. It is to hear that all roads lead.
The altitude varies from 3000 meters (9840 feet) at the top of Entoto to 2200 meters (6800 feet) at the foot of the city.
The temperature ranges from 14 degrees centigrade to 18 degrees centigrade. 80% of the yearly rainfall occurs between mid-June and September which is the heavy rainy season.
Addis Ababa was founded in 1880 by Menelik II who moved his capital city from Ankober (a town 175 km to the northeast) to the top of the Entoto Mountains. The church of St. Mary where Menelik has crowned Emperor in 1882 can still be visited on top of the mountain. His wife, the Empress Taitu however, found the natural hot springs at the foot of the mountain to be more to her liking and so after a while the capital was moved to the foot of the mountains just above the hot springs. The palace he built is still there.
