Overview

Riyadh is the birthplace of modern Saudi Arabia, where old-world charm meets 21st-century vision a blend of medieval and millennial makes for a beguiling cultural union. Riyadh translates to “the Gardens,” a reference to the area’s past that dates back to the 14th century, when the land was revered for its fertile soil, many canals and trees. 

Today, Riyadh Province, also known as Al Wosta, is home to the country’s capital: a modern metropolis with a thriving financial and business center and a growing cultural scene. It’s a city rich in history, boasting myriad forts, palaces and compelling museums, and some of the country’s most colourful atmospheric souqs. Still, it's also a modern metropolis, with glittering high-rises and a burgeoning contemporary art scene.
