Stone Town ("city of stone" in English), also known as Mji Mkongwe ("old city" in Swahili), is the old part of the capital of Zanzibar, Tanzania; it is located on the west coast of Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar archipelago. Once the capital of the Sultanate of Zanzibar, then a colonial administrative center during the British occupation, and today the seat of the government institutions of the semi-autonomous state of Zanzibar, Stone Town is one of the most historically important cities
East Africa. Its architecture,
largely from the 19th century, reflects the multiplicity of influences that define Swahili culture in general: Moorish, Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements are found there.
Due to its historical importance and its architecture, the city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
City where the legend Freddy Mercury is born, in 2019 a museum dedicated to him was inaugurated in the house where he was born.
