🇲🇦 Rabat is the capital city of Morocco and the country's seventh largest city. It is also the capital city of the Rabat-Salé-Kénitra administrative region. Rabat is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg, opposite Salé, the city's main commuter town. Rabat, Temara, and Salé form a conurbation. Silt-related problems have diminished Rabat's role as a port; however, Rabat, and Salé still maintain important textile, food processing and construction industries. In addition, tourism and the presence of all foreign embassies in Morocco serve to make Rabat one of the most important cities in the country. The Moroccan capital was ranked at second place by CNN in its "Top Travel Destinations of 2013". It is one of four Imperial cities of Morocco, and the medina of Rabat is listed as a World Heritage Site. Rabat is accessible by train through the ONCF system and by plane through the nearby Rabat–Salé Airport.
Rabat was ranked #827 by the Nomad List which evaluates and ranks remote work hubs by cost, internet, fun and safety. Rabat has a population of over 577,827 people. Rabat also forms the centre of the wider Rabat metropolitan area which has a population of over 1,800,000 people.
