Casablanca is rapidly developing into a modern industrial success story. The largest city in Morocco, its centre is impressive, with large boulevards and tall, white, well-kept buildings. The old city is more reminiscent of the Casablanca of Bergman and Bogart; a much smaller area with older houses and a good market. Certain landmarks are particularly beautiful, such as the Hassan II mosque which is well worth a visit. Central Casablanca houses Morocco’s biggest and busiest port and one of the largest on the African continent. With a number of deepwater quays, the port abounds with shipping from oil tankers to cruise liners. Fishing is plentiful as are pleasure boats and modern shopping needs are met in Centre 2000, a large shopping centre.
