Casablanca the place to be !
Casablanca (or White City), the largest city in Morocco with more than 4,270,750 inhabitants.
Economic capital, it is located on the Atlantic coast about 80 km south of the country’s administrative capital, Rabat.
Lively city, it also knows a large number of artistic and economic events throughout the year.
With two international exhibition fairs, Casablanca is the capital of Moroccan events.
Casablanca is located on the coast of Morocco. The mildness of the Mediterranean climate which benefits the city, allows to take advantage of the immense beaches. Especially since the city has exceptional sunshine all year round.
Casablanca is a city of knowledge that hosts a large community of students from all over the kingdom or from French-speaking Africa. Morocco’s leading higher education center, apart from a particularly stimulating student life, Casablanca is proving to be an excellent laboratory for a whole host of young people from a variety of backgrounds. For many, it is indeed the place where they discover autonomy and responsibility at the same time as they access knowledge and training.
The official languages of Morocco are Arabic and Amazigh. Morocco is also the third largest French-speaking country in the world. French is taught there as early as primary school. It is also the language spoken in Moroccan administrations. English has become a foreign language and is taught in most schools at a very young age.
