In the charming and mysterious East, in North Africa, barren and mysterious Morocco, one of its central gems is ancient Marrakech. One of the central and most beautiful attractions of Marrakech, located in the Medina— is the Palace of Bahia (Palais de la Bahia), or, in translation, "the Palace of Beauty." It was built for one of the four wives of the harem of Bu Ahmed Sidi Moussa, the grand vizier of the rulers of Moulay Hassan and Moulay Abd al-Aziz. The Moorish-style palace is well preserved and covers an area of eight hectares.

The pan-Arab philosophy about the house says that everything personal should be kept away from strangers and unkind eyes to yourself so as not to cause envy among others. So the Bahia Palace looks completely unremarkable, even dull, but this impression is too deceptive. Inside it is a magic box, where the rooms are arranged according to the principle of a maze. The palace's interior is stunning in its glory: it's decorated with painted ceilings and doors made of cedarwood, beautiful traditional mosaics are combined with carved stone and wood — everything is admirable!

Step back in time while traveling through desert lands of Morocco, and wind your way towards spectacular Casablanca, admire staggering beauty of Fes, or dive deep into the historical heritage of Rabat!
