A modern metropolis in full growth and a major historic city, Tunis is always full of surprises. On the side of the medina, numerous ancient buildings open their doors, some transformed into museums or cultural centers, others into restaurants and tea rooms. The greater metropolitan area of Tunis, often referred to as Grand Tunis, has some 2,700,000 inhabitants. Situated on a large Mediterranean Sea gulf (the Gulf of Tunis), behind the Lake of Tunis and the port of La Goulette, the city extends along the coastal plain and the hills that surround it. As the capital city of the country, Tunis is the focus of Tunisian political and administrative life; it is also the centre of the country`s commercial and cultural activities.
