Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island. Peppers, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg are some of the many spices found on the island. For the people of Zanzibar, spices and useful plants are a vital part of everyday life and a rich element in the island's strong and vibrant culture. The tropical climate of Zanzibar makes it the perfect place for exotic flowers and fruits to grow. Jasmine is an exotic and aromatic smelling flower that grows in Zanzibar. It is used during traditional ceremonies such as marriage.

'House of Wonders' was built by Sultan Bargash in 1883. It was the first building in East Africa having both electricity and running water. A miracle (wonder) in those days. 'House of Wonders' is nowadays called the Museum of Culture.
