The University of Ghana in Legon is not only the country’s first university but also a hub of intellectual and cultural exchange. Independence Square, an iconic landmark in Accra, symbolizes Ghana’s triumph over colonial rule.

For history enthusiasts, the Prempeh Museum offers a captivating narrative of Ashanti royalty and resistance against British colonialism. Bonwire Kente, renowned for its intricate handwoven fabric, allows visitors to witness the artistry and skill that goes into creating this iconic Ghanaian textile.

Cedi Beads, crafted by skilled artisans, exemplify Ghana’s rich tradition of bead-making. Each bead tells a story, representing centuries of heritage and cultural exchange.
