Culture & Heritage

Saudi culture is as rich as it is diverse. Visit the Kingdom’s many mosques and traditional markets to experience a rhythm of life that has little changed over the centuries. Since the days of antiquity, Saudi has occupied a pivotal position at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe. Today, there are more than 11,000 archaeological sites throughout the Kingdom, telling the story of the civilizations that lived over the years. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is proud to have five UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Al Ahsa Oasis, Al-Hijr Archaeological Site (Hegra), Al-Turaif District in Diriyah, Historic Jeddah and rock art in the Hail region.

And, for a taste of modern Saudi, don’t miss the urban districts and entertainment centres where people meet to shop, dine or just spend time with friends. From traditional dances and handicrafts to gleaming skyscrapers and thriving cities, Saudi is a destination in which history and modernity are inextricably linked and endlessly beguiling.
