Stone Town is the 'capital' of Zanzibar, and its largest town. It is a place of narrow, winding streets (most of which are too narrow for cars), busy marketplaces, and grand Arab houses. The town has a grandly delapidated feel to it. It has changed little in 200 years, since the times when Trade Sultans ruled from palaces.
Stone town is a place where cultures have mixed and live harmoniously together. The historic and cultural significance of the town is such that it was declared a UNESCO world heritage site
