Kisangani, Congo, Democratic Republic

Kisangani, formerly Stanleyville, is the third largest city in the DRC and lies completely within the tropical forest. The city’s new name originates from the nearby Boyoma Waterfalls and means “the city on the island.” Kisangani has great shopping (check out the avenue de l’Eglise) and fantastic local restaurants. It’s also known for its striking architecture and surprisingly makes a popular convention destination. Be sure to check out the many museums, botanical gardens, and zoo. The Rasaire of Notre-Dame Cathedral in the Central market is particularly appealing to visitors.
