Consisting of small and large islands in the Arabian Gulf, today Bahrain is the tourism paradise of the Gulf thanks to its hotels, discotheques, cinemas, night clubs and US$ 80 million airport outside its capital, Manama. Not least is the 15- mile highway connecting this country to Saudi Arabia.

Manama, the capital, is located in Bahrain, which is the biggest island after which the country was named and meaning "two seas" in Arabic. History of Bahrain, where such traditional activities as basketry and pearl fishery have not been sacrificed to the wealth earned from oil, goes back to the Assyrian times. This island country was ruled by the Abbasid, Portuguese and Ottomans before living under the British Empire. Thereafter Turkey, Iran and Britain waived their claims on this land, and Bahrain became independent. Business activities by the American company Bahrain Petroleum and the presence of a British air base employing 7000 servicemen caused the population growth to increase. Now Bahrain is one of the most important financial centers in the Middle East.

In the ancient times, it was called Dilmun and had rich water sources. Ancient travelers referred to it as the "land of the palm trees". Centuries later, contemporary archeologists consider Bahrain to be the oldest graveyard in the world, because it has 170,000 graves dating back to 4000 years ago. Some of these graves are near the village of Ebu Ali. These tombstones were made by delicate workmanship, and reflect the Phoenician influence. Scientists comment that the data they collected from these graves indicate that Bahrain had been an active center of sea trading in the past.
