Great place to visit art galleries
Katara Cultural Village is the largest multi-cultural project in Qatar. With two majestic mosques whose architecture evokes imagery from 1001 Nights, a variety of art galleries, a Romanesque open amphitheater, a drama theater, an opera house, a museum showcasing Qatar’s maritime history, spectacular sea view, and an impressive array of the finest international restaurants, Katara offers visitors a break from the glitz of the city. Whether for a bike ride, a swim or a stroll, whether to watch the Qatar philharmonic perform at the opera house, to smoke shisha or spend a few hours in a culturally stimulating environment, Katara will send you home with amazing pictures and a renewed sense of tradition amidst the swanky newness of its surroundings.
