    Most Beautiful Cities in Nigeria

    1. Lagos

    This is number one on our list today and over the years has been the home of all business-minded people.

    Lagos state is known as Africa’s “jewel.” It is the most populous city in West Africa, as well as the most productive city in Sub-Saharan Africa. The odd thing about this state is that it has the smallest landmass.

    Lagos State was established on May 27, 1967, in the western region of Nigeria. It served as Nigeria’s capital until 1991 when it was relocated to Abuja. Although it is no longer the federal capital, it is the nation’s commercial capital.

    Lagos is blessed with so many beautiful areas and one of the most notable is the Lagos Conservative centre where you see all kinds of beautiful things including some friendly animals.


    2. Calabar

    Calabar is a site that is located in the south area of Nigeria and was once the capital of Nigeria before it was moved to Lagos.

    It is today seen as one of the most beautiful places in Nigeria.

    If you want to visit Calabar, we advise you to do that between August to December because you will have the opportunity to witness The Calabar Carnival that is celebrated every year.

    While in Calabar there are so many places to visit like the popular Tinapa and the National Museum which has some of the best art museums in Nigeria.

    We can’t conclude talking about Calabar or cross river state without talking about the major wonder of Nigeria.

    Obudu mountain was popularly known as the obudu cattle range.

    Mr Caughley, a Scottish rancher, was the first to consider turning it into a resort in 1949. He returned in 1951 with Mr Hugh Jones, another rancher, and they set out to improve the property. Cross River State government now owns it.

    Today the resort is one of the most visited tourist centres in Nigeria with different weather and climate.

    3. Plateau State

    This is one of the most hidden places you will ever think of in the country. Plateau is located in the northern area of the country.

    One of the notable places that are very beautiful on the plateau is the National Museum.

    Bernard Fagg constructed the Jos Museum in 1952 to facilitate ate study of prehistoric Nigeria. Jos Museum, formerly the National Museum, is an important study centre into Nigeria’s prehistoric civilization, containing a pottery hall, Nok clay heads, and a museum of traditional Nigerian architecture.
